‘Left, Right & Center’: Same-Sex Marriage and the Immigration Speed Bump

Truthdig Editor-in-Chief Robert Scheer and the other “Left, Right & Center” panelists discuss same-sex marriage as the issue moves to the Supreme Court. Will the justices’ decision be sweeping? The dramatic shift in public opinion on the topic may be reflected in the Republican Party’s repositioning, but pollster Nate Silver says only 25 percent of the GOP supports gay marriage. Scheer cheers the Republicans’ re-evaluation and laments the Democrats’ ideology shift in the ’90s.

The debate continues into immigration policy. Will labor and business groups be able to resolve differences over a guest worker program?

Dan Schnur, director of the Jesse M. Unruh Institute of Politics at USC, sits in for Matt Miller, moderating from the center. Scheer is on the left and Matthew Continetti, editor of The Washington Free Beacon, brings the view from the right.
