Krauthammer’s Take: The Case Against Hobby Lobby Is What You Get with Big Government

by NRO Staff

The case in which the Supreme Court voted 5–4 in favor of Hobby Lobby arose partly because of the expansion of the modern welfare state, Charles Krauthammer observed Monday on Fox.

The entitlement state depends upon the government to determine who gets health care and what sort of health care they receive, he explained. The government “defined [preventative care provided by Obamacare] arbitrarily as being contraception, as if a pregnancy is a disease to be prevented,” he said.

His main takeaway from the Hobby Lobby case was the expansion of the state, regardless of intentions,  will “inevitably” impinge on religious practice.
