What's that about the First Amendment, Mrs. Huffington?

Ariana Huffington, owner of the Huffington Post, complained about Obama's henchman Eric Holder today on Meet the Press

"This is about the First Amendment, this is about freedom of the press..."

The first amendment to the Constitution reads:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Congress didn't make any law about seizing phone records of journalists--that was strictly a solo endeavor by Obama's justice department. But Congress did make a law prohibiting the free exercise of religion--it's absurdly called the Affordable Care Act. The HHS contraception mandate is a direct violation of the First Amendment. Where were Huffington and the rest of those Democratic "journalists" when that passed? Where is their outrage now?
