  • Schumer: Obamacare Has Been Disastrous for Democrats

    Sounds like Schumer is thinking maybe it wasn't such a good idea to "pass the bill so we can find out what's in it".

    Now that 28—soon probably 29—of the 60 Senate Democrats who voted for ObamaCare are out of office, one of the surviving believers is confessing a crisis of faith. New York Senator Chuck Schumer’s striking remarks on Tuesday suggest that the church of ObamaCare is losing congregants even in the front pews.

    Speaking at the National Press Club, the influential Senate leader identified the decline of middle-class incomes as the defining challenge of the age. Democrats can only win elections, Mr. Schumer said, as “the pro-government party”—and ObamaCare is undermining that larger political project.

    And, lest anybody should try to claim I'm saying something I'm not saying -- I am NOT claiming that Schumer is against Obamacare on its face.

    That looks suspiciously like "I'm not sorry for what I did, I'm sorry I got caught."
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

      I'm not sure what "Diastrous" means, but it sure sounds bad.

          Why, I must've been thinking of something else. Carry on.

                Tell me CP, are you against Obamacare in particular, or all attempts at universal health coverage? We here in OZ have universal coverage funded by a levy we pay in our taxation. The UK has a system too. I'm sure (but I haven't actually looked) those nasty Scandinavian countries have some sort of system too.

                Are all such systems 'bad'?

                Thinking about it, this does not belong on this thread. Feel free to ignore it.

                  I am against the manner in which this was rammed down the throats of the American people.
                  It had all the earmarks of "you people are stupid, we'll do this and you'll thank us for it".

                  Now, even Schumer seems to be running from it.
