Montana had it right with their anti-corruption law, but did AG Steve Bullock and Governor Brian Schweitzer make the best arguments they could in asserting state sovereignty?
I joined last night’s Ed Show panel with Joan Walsh and Michael Medved to discuss Scalia’s judicial activism, the Supreme Court ruling on Montana’s anti-corruption law and the controversial Arizona immigration law, SB1070. Take a look at video below if you missed out on last night’s show.
From The Ed Show
Scalia gets political with dissent
Justice Antonin Scalia condemns President Obama’s policy on young undocumented immigrants. He also complains the feds did little to enforce existing immigration laws. Ed Schultz talks with attorney Catherine Crier, Salon.com’s Joan Walsh and radio host Michael Medved about Scalia’s comments and the Supreme Court’s rulings.
‘ED Show’ playbook: Mon., June 25
Mon Jun 25, 2012 7:15 PM EDT
The Supreme Court guts Arizona’s “papers please” immigration law, but Gov. Jan Brewer still thinks she won.
Tonight, Ed will have reaction and analysis with Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ).
The Supreme Court also doubles down on one of the most destructive rulings ever, Citizens United, and strikes down a century-old Montana law preventing corruption.
Ed will extend analysis of both Supreme Court decisions with tonight’s panel, including Catherine Crier, attorney and best-selling author (“Patriot Acts: What Americans Must do to Save the Republic”), Joan Walsh, Salon’s Editor at Large and Michael Medved, nationally syndicated talk show host.
And speaking of the Supreme Court, the justices are set to rule on “Obamacare” on Thursday. What if the individual mandate dies and the rest of the Affordable Care Act lives?
Ed will go through the possible outcomes with Wendell Potter, News Analyst with the Center for Public Integrity, former Communications Director and Vice President of CIGNA, and author (“Deadly Spin”).
And as Republicans prepare to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt (the full House is scheduled to vote Thursday), there’s more proof the “Fast and Furious” investigation is nothing but a witch hunt.
