    This is so shocking to hear from a Democrat that I wonder if hes being sarcastic. Is his message really praising Democrats for doing what was "right" instead of what was political? Beyond all that he makes some great points. Most healthcare spending is by govt programs already, the rest through employers where they dont pay alot. So the ACA didnt help very many people, and those people dont even vote. And this was all at a time when the focus should have been on jobs and economic growth, financial stability, not new and bigger govt socialism.

    The same might be said if immigration now. Why is politics focused on something which will help very few people, at a time when security, debt, deficits, spending, taxes, are more important? And this is confirmed in polling. Voters dont want amnesty, and they dont care about immigration as much as they care about govt taxing and spending, and regulation.
    Schumer is another of the long list of greasy, slimy Demokrats. He's a hardcore leftist. A vital cog in the Gruber/Obama scheme.

    This is about saving skins.
    It's a CYA move.

    Yes, he's in NY, which means his seat is fairly safe, yes he's a mentor to Weiner, yes he voted for Obamakare... but he sees the writing on the wall with all that has been happening due to Demokrat policies. Failure is what has happened, and Demokrats have been losing their seats en masse.

    ObamaKare is a massive failure.
    The lies about ObamaKare have been publicly exposed thanks to Gruber.
    The economy is a massive failure.
    Bengazi is still an open wound.
    Demokrats using the IRS as a political weapon is still an open wound.
    Foreign policy is a joke.
    Executive amnesty is seen as ObamaVomit.
    Now Ferguson... a Demokrat crafted response to justice.

    The sum total: Does not bode well for Demokrats.

    The greasy NY Senator is also trying to help Obama with a Vagina... aka Hillary... by creating distance to all this misery. The Clinton Crime Family and Schumer are connected by a certain Weiner, and his wife Huma. I'll bet they put him up to this, and seeing his ass on the line, is desperate to try anything to prevent the ships from sinking.

    Schummer said exactly what I have been say about the Democrats and the ACA for a very long time. In my words that the people elected Obama and the Democrats to fix the economy, but then they concentrated on health care totally ignoring the wishes of the people. They forgot all about jobs and the economy. Then 2010 happened. If one looked at the exit polls for 2014, 45% of the voters said it was their number one issue, 78% said they were worried their and the nation's financial future.

    So here we go again for the Democrats, with the economy on everyone's mind, what does Obama do? Immigration reform. Same old story of ignoring what the people want.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    When a slimy hatchetman like Schumer pisses in the face of his party, you bet we're going to stand up... notice... and if someone has half a brain, use his words against those in his party.

    Well... ObamaKare was passed, we know know what's in it, and it's junk based on a heap of admitted lies. It was a shell game, sold to a bunch of suckers.

    Just how many times did we here Obama claim he had "a laser-like focus on the economy"?

    Simply more lies.

    "Commie darling"? That's absurd.

    Great point. He also constantly states thats its the first thing he thinks of when he wakes up. Then he goes and plays golf.

    While I do not agree with the Senator, I will not discard the fact that he is a smart guy. Perhaps there is other reasons you discount his intelligence beyond just disagreement with his opinions.

    He got sidetracked into doing a political agenda instead of what the people elected him to do in the first place. First it cost him the House, then it cost him the senate. This is what happens at times when those whom the people elect fail to listed to those who voted for them.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
