Liberals should be seeing not a defeat, but an open door, in the recent SCOTUS ruling granting religious exemptions to for-profit businesses, regardless of how narrowly defined. Companies are now going to be trying to shuffle off costs they don't want to pay onto the government if they can concoct the least plausible religious grounds.
A creative congresscritter would be delighted. In fact, he would be laughing with delight as he directed his staff to cobble together legislation to allow any company that objects on any moral ground at all to whatever kind of medical coverage to shove that over to the government. Of course, that bill would be called the "Relief From Religious Burdening Act", since by taking all those things out of the hands of businesses it would put them into a single government program where all citizens would be covered, regardless. And anyone with any religious views at all who owns a business could just make a call and object to some provision on religious grounds, and Voila! that coverage would go over to the government, not just for that company's employees, but for all employees of all companies.
Anyone want to object to vaccinations on religious grounds? Boom! -- the government now will cover all vaccinations. How about joint replacements? eye surgery? Just think of every little thing any religious people have ever objected to, and imagine a single program covering them all equally for all citizens.
Liberals should be cheering at the opportunity this has provided, and should get busy with this legislation, intended to free all religious (and non-religious) consciences of the worry about having to cover any medical procedure they might be concerned over.
