  • Nancy Pelosi tells Ed Schultz she was "confused" by Mitt Romney's reaction to the Supreme Court's decision today on healthcare

     - 

    Following the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Obama’s signature health care law today, Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) sat down with MSNBC host Ed Schultz to discuss the decision.

    When asked about Mitt Romney’s response to the Supreme Court’s decision, Pelosi told Schultz when listening to him, “I was confused because it was as if he was for it before he was against it and now he’s both. He supports the decision of the court, to overturn the entire bill and yet he said but if they do that, you still cannot be discriminated against on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions. How does that happen? Is he going to pay for it? Maybe he’s volunteering. The fact is, you cannot have it both ways.”

    Catch a sneak peek of the interview below and be sure to tune in for the full interview with Nancy Pelosi tonight on ‘The Ed Show’ at 8PM ET on MSNBC. For more please visit, http://www.ed.msnbc.com. You can also follow Ed on twitter at @EdShow.

  • New Ed Schultz interview in Men's Health

     - 

    In a candid new article in Men’s Health, MSNBC host Ed Schultz opens up about the evolution of his political beliefs from conservative to liberal. Schultz says there was a "series of grassroots events" that changed his life and political views. Specifically, he outlined the two main factors, which were:

    1. Meeting his wife Wendy – Schultz says“My wife Wendy and I met in 1997. She was managing the homeless clinic in Fargo. For one of our first dates, she says, “Come down to the Salvation Army and let’s have lunch.” I said okay, but I didn’t even know where it was. I went in there and it was all these homeless people, and a lot of them were veterans. I started talking with them and it really motivated me to start a series on veterans’ benefits, how it was rotten that we simply weren’t doing right by our veterans. That was one of those moments.
    2. Losing his mother to Alzheimer’s:my mom passed away from Alzheimer’s in 2002. I saw up close how the health-care system, Medicare, all of it, functions. You go through things that have a profound effect on you. That was a big one.”

    Schultz also discussed his daily grind as a radio and television host (he has his radio show from 12-3PM ET and then his show on MSNBC at 8PM ET) and how he deals with stress on the job. Check out the full article here.
