    Abramoff: Roberts' decision opens doors for lobbyists



    Jack Abramoff, onetime power broker for the elite of Washington, D.C., will appear on the July 5 editions of Sean Hannity’s “The Great American Panel” and on CNN’s news program, “Starting Point,” with Soledad O’Brien to discuss how Chief Justice John Roberts’ opinion has opened the door for lobbyists and special interests in a way they could never have dreamed.




    In his appearances, Abramoff has been warning that powerful lobbyists will now have constitutional authority to push Congress to give their corporate clients a powerful weapon to wield against competition. He explains that the Supreme Court decision will enable lobbyists to get their pawns in Congress to regulate ordinary economic choices and that Roberts’ decision gives government the ability to tax “inactivity.”

    The underlying result of this historic Supreme Court decision, according to Abramoff, can propel an endless list of loopholes.

    I would rather the law have never been challenged at all, than get challenged, then upheld in a way that creates a limitless authority to tax economic non-activity.



    It was like the Left was going up for a 3-point shot, and John Roberts fouled them in the process. They still sank the shot, and now we have to sit here and watch them score the extra points Roberts "gifted" to them.
