Political weasels for $400, Alex.
Who said the following?
“I predict by November those who voted for healthcare will find it an asset, those who voted against it will find it a liability.” 2010.
“Americans were crying out for an end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs; not for changes in their healthcare…So when Democrats focused on healthcare, the average middle class person thought, ‘the Democrats are not paying enough attention to me.” 2014.
“The Republican plan to cut healthcare wouldn’t make America great again, it would make American sick again, and lead to chaos instead of affordable care.” 2017.
What is Chuck Schumer?
Schumer is a weasel. Many high-level politicians are, but he’s really detestable in so many ways. He’s the kind of politician that churned out of Harvard and stepped right into politics. He served in the New York Assembly for three terms, then landed in the House of Representatives for eight terms, and when challenged, ran to Wall Street for friends and cash. He defended the Waco mass murder for the Clinton machine, whose response to that nutty group included tanks, military weapons, and CS gas. His ability to defend evil is pretty much unmatched. One of his protege’s is Anthony Weiner. He is serving his third term in the Senate.
We could have cut him off back in 1981 if the proposed Constitutional Amendment for term limits had been in place. Or even 1993, if he had went to the Senate after the House.
The publicity hound will dominate the old media for the next four years.
There is no better representation of why we need term limits than Chuck Schumer. Opponents of term limits claim experience is necessary. That claim is antithetical to representative government, because it implies that the people are rubes and need the “smarter, better” people to make decisions for them. It’s in line with a need for rulers, instead of a representative.
I don’t know what the Republicans will do on Obamacare, I’m not automatically in favor of whatever they do because they are Republicans. That’s partisan hackery. But because of the fact that government programs, once in place, never die, means we will be fighting over what we have lost for a very long time because of the government take over of health insurance.
Schumer, in the 2014 quote above claims the Democratic Party didn’t do enough to address the needs of the people, and he had it partially right. What the Congress really needs to do is stop building monuments to themselves, and work to limit government so the people can be free.
