“I can tell you one thing. If I’m the godfather of this thing, then it gives me the right to kill it.”
— Mitt Romney, in an interview with Hugh Hewitt, on President Obama’s health care law.
Lawmaker Admonished for Wearing a Hoodie
Rep. Bobby Rush (D-IL) spoke on the House floor wearing a hooded sweatshirt — to protest the killing of Florida teen Trayvon Martin — and the presiding Republican ordered him removed from the chamber, reminding members they are not allowed to wear hats.
Said Rush: “Racial profiling has to stop. Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum.”
Said Toobin: “This still looks like a train wreck for the Obama Administration, and it may also be a plane wreck. This entire law is now in serious trouble. It also seems that the individual mandate is doomed. I mean, Anthony Kennedy spent much of this morning talking about if we strike down the individual mandate, how should we handle the rest of the law? Now, it is less clear that they are going to strike down the whole law. There does seem to be some controversy in the court about that. Certainly there are some members of the court, Antonin Scalia, Justice Alito, who want to strike down the entire law, but it seemed almost a foregone conclusion today that they were going to strike down the individual mandate, and the only question is does the whole law go out the window with it?”
He added: “Well, it’s hard to imagine how things could be going much worse for the Obama Administration.”
