(2 of 2) Nancy Pelosi – “Quote of the Day”

1

Via: Huffngton Post

It took Nancy Pelosi just two words on Wednesday to take Michele Bachmann down.

The House minority leader was asked during a press conference what she thought of Bachmann’s intense denunciation earlier in the day of the Supreme Court’s historic rulings in favor of gay marriage. She replied with a shrug:

“Who cares?”

In case you missed it, “WHO CARES?”

Four reasons why Romney is “blowin’ smoke up …” (see photo)

Via: Think Progress

Responding to Thursday’s Supreme Court decision upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, Congressional Republicans have scheduled a vote in the House to repeal the law and Mitt Romney pledged to undo the measure if he’s elected president in November. But unless the GOP wins a super majority in the Senate — a scenario no one thinks is plausible — it can do little more than weaken Obamacare’s regulations and defund some of its provisions. Here is why:

1. Romney has no authority to issue waivers.

~

2. Congress can’t repeal the full law through reconciliation.

~

3. Republicans have NOTHING to replace it with.

~

4.  Americans support Obamacare’s provisions.

While Americans may not like “Obamacare” — and the political process of passing it — they do support its major provisions and are likely to resist any effort by Republicans to take away their benefits.

A recent Reuters/Ipsos poll found that while 56 percent of Americans oppose the law as a whole,

 61 percent of respondents favored allowing young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance plans until age 26,

72 percent wish to maintain the requirement that companies with more than 50 workers provide health insurance for their employees,

82 percent of respondents favored banning insurance companies from denying coverage to people with pre-existing conditions.

As MORE BENEFITS roll out in 2014, it will be increasingly difficult for Republicans to argue for their repeal.

‘Victory for the American People!’ – yeah, but did ‘Boehner, Boner, whatever’, cry?

For the record: this was taken the day before the ruling.

(2 of 2) Governor George C. Wallace – State Rights

Via: Alabama Department of Archieves and History

On June 11, 1963, Alabama’s Governor George Wallace came to national prominence when he kept a campaign pledge to stand in the schoolhouse door to block integration of Alabama public schools. Governor Wallace read this proclamation when he first stood in the door-way to block the attempt of two black students, Vivian Malone and James Hood, to register at the University of Alabama. President John F. Kennedy federalized the Alabama National Guard, and ordered its units to the university campus.

Wallace then stepped aside and returned to Montgomery allowing the students to enter.

 “I stand here today, as Governor of this sovereign State, and refuse to willingly submit to illegal usurpation of power by the Central Government. I claim today for all the people of the State of Alabama those rights reserved to them under the Constitution of the United States.”

personal thought:

I think if the current ‘Roberts Court’ had been the ‘court at that time’; we’d still have segregated schools, and ‘COLORED’ drinking fountains.

(1 of 2) Scalia: If States Can Resrict Those Freed Slaves, Then Why Not Messicans?

Via: Wonkette

The Supreme Court conducted a vile smear against the noble state of Arizona today by shooting down most of SB 1070, the law that restricts illegal Mexicans from existing. Our old pal Antonin Scalia, writing the dissenting opinion, simply didn’t care for his peers’ decision. As Scalia sees it, states = sovereign, so states can do whatever they want, however they want it, to keep the filthy Mexicans outside looking in. Where is the problem? Southern states did this all the time with freed slaves, so why can’t they do it with the taco people?

This will go down as one of the great highlights of Scalia 2.0, now featuring more anti-black people precedent:

Notwithstanding “[t]he myth of an era of unrestricted immigration” in the first 100 years of the Republic, the States enacted numerous laws restricting the immigra tion of certain classes of aliens, including convicted crimi­nals, indigents, persons with contagious diseases, and (in Southern States) freed blacks. 

Neuman, The Lost Century of American Immigration (1776–1875), 93 Colum. L. Rev. 1833, 1835, 1841–1880 (1993).  State laws not only pro­vided for the removal of unwanted immigrants but also imposed penalties on unlawfully present aliens (see photo) and those who aided their immigration.^2 Id., at 1883.

You know what, we can totally believe that that happened. Way to cite it in your 2012 opinion, friend.
