Koch lured libertarian Prof. Hayek to U.S. with Social Security!

Levine and Ames conclude their scoop on the Koch's and Hayek's hypocrisy thusly:

"Why didn't Charles Koch offer to put up some of his enormous wealth to pay for Hayek's temporary medical insurance? One obvious answer: because the state had already offered a better and freer program. But perhaps Koch's stinginess also reveals the social ethic behind libertarian values: every man for himself; selfishness is a virtue."
