Congress can wait.

 

Wedding Cake Civil Rights

The Supreme Court heard a case this week about a baker who refused to make a gay wedding cake.

The Baker, Jack Phillips, says he doesn’t have anything against gay people and would be happy to sell the couple a ready made cake. But by making a special cake he would be participating in the ceremony and that would  violate his religious believes.

The Court seems divided.

Senate Tax Bill Kills Health Insurance Individual Mandate

The Senate tax bill ends the mandate to buy health insurance. This is a bad thing? It is according to a CNN Money article:

Poor Americans would lose billions of dollars worth of federal benefits under the Senate GOP tax bill, according to a new Congressional Budget Office report.

This is largely because the legislation would eliminate the individual mandate, which requires nearly all Americans to get health insurance or pay a penalty. This would result in 13 million fewer people having coverage in 2027, the CBO found.

Many of the folks who would forgo coverage would have lower or moderate incomes and would have qualified for Medicaid or federal help paying their premiums or out-of-pocket health expenses, CBO found.

If it’s a good deal why do people need to be forced to buy it? Do they think we’re stupid?

Oh.

Senator Pocahontas

President Trump cracked wise about Senator Pocahontas to some Native American WWII heroes on Monday. Of course he was referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts.

Warren, a blue eyed blonde, landed a job at Harvard Law School while claiming to be a Cherokee Indian, due to high cheekbones. Harvard touted her as the law school’s “first woman of color.”

Now she’s touchy about the subject. So she took Trump’s bait and called his comment a racial slur.

Mollie Hemingway says that makes no sense:

The only way the Pocahontas insult makes sense is as a joke about Warren’s false claim of being Native American. He’s not insulting her for being a Native American, because she’s not Native American. He’s highlighting how she gave employers and others false information about her tribal status while at Harvard and elsewhere.
