Today the Supreme Court ruled against ObamaCare and produced a narrow win for freedom. While the ruling in favor of individual liberty wasn't as broad as many had hoped for, the 5-4 decision in the historic Hobby Lobby case does chip away at the government’s authority to impose regulations on private businesses.
As the Court's decision makes headlines around the country, it’s important to realize how our judicial system influences our lives in very real ways. The judicial branch is just as important as the executive and legislative branches, and yet very few Americans pay attention to how it operates.
FreedomWorks wants to change that. That’s why we just launched our Judicial Reform Project to shine light on the shadows of our Court System.
We break down how the Federal Circuit system is structured, and how each circuit leans politically. Did you know that the 5th Circuit is the most-pro freedom in the country, and that the 9th Circuit is the most pro-government?
The Hobby Lobby decision is a perfect example of the impact the American court system has on our lives. It’s important that we, as citizens, take the time to learn about this important branch of our government.
