    Chuck Schumer says Democrats shouldn’t have bothered to reform health care

    The plight of uninsured Americans and the hardships caused by unfair insurance company practices certainly needed to be addressed. But it wasn’t the change we were hired to make; Americans were crying out for an end to the recession, for better wages and more jobs; not for changes in their health care.
    Chuck Schumer says Democrats shouldn’t have bothered to reform health care - The Washington Post

    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.

    I'd never question that Schumer is a smart guy but if there is one thing he hates is being in the minority.

    It is amazing to watch how quickly the left will throw one of their own under the bus if they step out of party line for even a second. Yeah, Schumer, the commie darling, is a "representative of wall street". HA! Good one.

    One of the shiftiest leftwing weasels on the planet, and bubba is trying to marginalize him. What a turn of events!!!! Schumer is right, they should have stayed the **** out of healthcare because they don't know what they're doing.

    Yea the Democrats shouldn't have " reformed " Health Care.

    You LYING bunch of low lifes screwed it all up.

    And sure the Government spends a ever increasing amount of money on it.

    But none of that makes the current rate of Medicare spending sustainable.

    i note you leap to embrace the weasel only because he is now a critic of the timing of Obamacare
    as if there would have been an easy time to get that measure passed

    I always find it extremely notable and informative when a leftwinger comes out against their own. I note the you leap to throw him under the bus the minute he attacks your pet program.
