Just kicks for some, but apparently there are others who live day-to-day by this stuff ...
Astrology Weekly Excerpt:
According to this website when I enter his birth data it pulls up something interesting about his sun sign (9.1 degree scorpio):
Interpretation of the 9° Scorpio symbolic degree
"A man wears a mask and the disguise of Mephistopheles."
Cheerful, clever, and elusive character. One is highly skilled in simulation and manipulation and keeps one's objectives carefully concealed beneath merry and helpful attitudes. Should the natal chart concur, this degree indicates a brilliant success as a diplomat, an actor, or in any occupation involving the design and manufacturing of costumes.
I googled Mephistopheles and found this link which indicates that Mephistopheles is a demon in German folklore.
Also he seems to have a number of planets in Scorpio which would make sense why he is taking such a "controlling" stance on the bill that is extremely unpopular with the people.
