Congressman Lays Out Public Option "Fix" if Health Care Mandate Goes Down

Anthony Weiner (D-NY) Talks SCOTUS, Public Option, Pawlenty on 'The Last Word'

David Freedlander

Anthony Weiner appeared (again) on MSNBC last night to talk about
yesterday's lower court decision that called the Affordable Care Act

Weiner said that the judge who rendered the verdict, was, like most
conservatives, happy to engage in judicial activism when it suited his
political interests, and he took a shot across the bow at  the Supreme
Court, who will likely ultimately decide the constiutionality of the
bill, saying that despite the merits of the law, it is impossible to
predict how such a politicized body will rule.

And finally, Weiner took another shot at G.O.P. presidential hopeful
Tim Pawlenty, saying that his coffee cup "knows more about health care
reform than Pawlenty knows."
