“The transgendered community has to be protected. I just don’t have any tolerance for that sort of intolerance. And I think we need to legislate aggressively to protect them.”

“I mean has anybody been watching the debates lately? You’ve got a governor whose state is on fire denying climate change. It’s true. You’ve got audiences cheering at the prospect of somebody dying because they don’t have healthcare. And booing a service member in Iraq because they’re gay. That’s not reflective of who we are.”

Quote Of The Day - Barack Obama

I agree.  We’re better than this, and it’s time we start showing it.  We need to be compassionate out loud!

Also applies to Teabaggers and Presidents!

“If a woman’s employer is a charity or a hospital that has a religious objection to providing contraceptive services as part of their health plan, the insurance company -– not the hospital, not the charity -– will be required to reach out and offer the woman contraceptive care free of charge, without co-pays and without hassles.”

President Obama, 2/10/12

Explains the Consumerist: The result will be that religious organizations won’t have to pay for these services, and no religious institution will have to provide these services directly. Let me repeat: These employers will not have to pay for, or provide, contraceptive services. But women who work at these institutions will have access to free contraceptive services, just like other women, and they’ll no longer have to pay hundreds of dollars a year that could go towards paying the rent or buying groceries.

Is the Affordable Care Act Unconstitutional? Greg Magarian, 5-Feb-2012

The Obama Administration’s signature legislative achievement, the Affordable Care Act, has sparked political controversy at every stage of its consideration. Now the Supreme Court is preparing to decide whether or not the Act violates the U.S. Constitution. In particular, legal challengers argue that the Act’s “individual mandate” – its requirement that all U.S. citizens purchase health care coverage from private insurance companies – encroaches on the powers that the Constitution reserves to the states. The challenge has divided the federal courts. This talk will introduce the key constitutional concepts that frame the debate, evaluate their application to the health care controversy, and suggest how the Supreme Court may ultimately resolve the challenge. 

Greg Magarian is Professor of Law at Washington University in St. Louis. He teaches and writes about constitutional law, with special emphasis on the First Amendment rights relating to freedom of expression, law and religion, and the law of politics. He has published widely and made numerous scholarly presentations in the United States and abroad. Professor Magarian received his B.A. from Yale and his J.D., as well as a master’s degree in public policy, from the University of Michigan, where he was editor-in-chief of the Michigan Law Review. He served as a judicial clerk for Judge Louis Oberdorfer of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia and for Justice John Paul Stevens of the U.S. Supreme Court.

[Note: he erroneously refers to Medicaid as Medicare in much of this talk.]
