Senator Schumer’s Chamber of Commerce Toadiness
New York Senator Chuck Schumer is attempting to rewrite his history for being ‘captured’ by the Wall Street crowd as well as the Chamber of Commerce, with his latest pronouncement in which he disagreed with President Obama. And such Schumer has repeatedly proven himself to be a hypocrite, as well. a hypocrite too.
To wit, the following from Bloomberg Politics.
“Unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them” in electing Obama and a Democratic Congress in 2008 amid a recession, Schumer of New York said in a speech in Washington. “We took their mandate and put all our focus on the wrong problem — health care reform.”
Schumer said Democrats should have addressed issues aiding the middle class to build confidence among voters before turning to revamping the health-care system. He said he opposed the timing of the health-care vote and was overruled by other party members.
When the Democrats, back cloak room of the Senate chamber discussed Card Check and subsequently, Obama tossed Card Check into the proverbial trash can, Schumer’s allegiance to the Wall Street Crowd as well as the Chamber of Commerce, knew of no upper bounds in gentility when it came to addressing the prevalent issues facing the Middle Class and the Working Class. However, he sure knew of the lesser bounds in gentility, and thusly, showed his true colors for his newly acquired neo-liberalism and this from a former Progressive in the House. And obviously, he learned much at the knee and during the reign of now stellar Senator Hillary Clinton from New York.
And for those of us and who are the “minority” know well that Schumer’s the Big Dunce in American politics. As such, he knows no Shame. And New Yorkers should be embarrassed for having an iconic two-fer, Cuomo and Schumer. And yet, he’s ascended onto the Power Curve as the “messenger” for the Democrats, and this has irritated the hell out me, given that I am a staunch Democrat.
