Obama Speaks Out on Supreme Court Consideration of Health Care Reform: VIDEO


At a press conference outside the White House today, President Obama preempted a Supreme Court decision on the constitutionality of health care reform with some remarks in light of the discussion about arguments in the case last week, saying he's confident that SCOTUS would uphold the law:

“I think it is important and I think the American people understand, and I think the justices should understand that in the absence of an individual mandate, you cannot have a mechanism to insure that people with preexisting conditions can actually get health care...I just remind conservative commentators that for years we’ve heard that the biggest problem is judicial activism or a lack of judicial restraint. That a group of people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and passed law. Well, this is a good example. And I’m pretty confident that this court will recognize that and not take that step.”

Dan Savage is a Visiting Professor of Sex in 'Savage U': VIDEO


Savage U premieres on MTV tomorrow night, late night...

Writes Savage on Slog: "Think of it as 18 and Not Pregnant—that's how I think of it. A show about what your life can be like if you manage to get through high school without making a baby. You can go to college! You can have sex, if you haven't already, with protection! And with an eye on your future! A future that an unplanned pregnancy would really screw up! And one day some obnoxious gay dude will show up on campus and answer your sex questions!"

Check out the teaser, AFTER THE JUMP...
