Why the Biggest Winners in the Hobby Lobby Case May Be the Koch Brothers: Bill Blum

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

We may not get a Supreme Court decision in the Hobby Lobby and Conestoga Wood cases that challenge the Affordable Care Act’s contraception mandate until the end of June, but it’s probably not too early to project the biggest winners in the cases: brothers Charles and David Koch.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

Truth and reality stare us all squarely in the face. It’s a shame that we all don’t – or won’t – see it.

 

"It is, of course, by no means surprising that the Kochs are central players in the anti-Obamacare movement. Since 1977, when Charles Koch co-founded the Cato Institute, the brothers and their foundations have donated over $85 million to help finance an armada of right-wing activist organizations, including well-known advocacy groups and think tanks like Americans for Prosperity and the Federalist Society, as well as more obscure organizations like the National Federation of Independent Business, which served as the lead plaintiff in the individual mandate case, and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, a Washington, D.C., public-interest law firm that currently represents Hobby Lobby at the Supreme Court along with former Solicitor General Paul Clement."

 

But hey, this is America. We’re all allowed to have our own beliefs and to buy into any ideology that strikes our fancy. On the right, this includes an ideology which desires to seemingly limit the rights and choices of women.

 

Then again, Dictionary.com does define conservatism as, "the disposition to preserve or restore what is established and traditional and to limit change."

 

To limit change. Pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?
