Chuck Schumer: The American People Did Say "Repeal ObamaCare" and "Reduce the Size of Government" In The Election

At Hot Air, Schumer continues this line of thought to say that they didn't say extend the Bush Tax Cuts for the wealthiest Americans, but let's just focus on that first part.

He concedes the electorate did demand a repeal of ObamaCare. And a reduction in the size of government.

What is his justification then for refusing to join an override against Obama's veto of a bill repealing ObamaCare?

1 It's Chuck Schumer. He's lying, and he's already forgotten that he said it. It is of no consequence, sadly.

He's noticeably swollen these past few years.

3 It's the same justification that lets them do meaningful shit during the lame duck.

The defeated Iowa governor is giving raises to AFSCME employees during the lame duck. I'm not sure if they can be rolled back but even if they could in theory, Iowans left one house chamber in charge of the Democrats.

They won. They're not accountable. They have no basic honor or decency.

They have no independent morality. Passing laws against the will of the people is just fine because the will of the people doesn't matter in the service of the agenda. The ends justify the means. They hate invasive airport screening, until a Democrat is in charge. They don't get very fourth amendmenty anymore, do they?

You fucked up, America. You trusted them.

5 I cannot wait to leave my beloved New York. Don't get me wrong - it will always be my hometown and there were so many great things about it.

But I'm done. Keep Schumer, Rangel, Gillibrand, Nadler, Weiner, Ackerman and all the other goniff momzer commies.

Au revoir. 5 year plan (oh the irony in that) starts now.

Most Americans didn't fuck up last month, and almost half the voters didn't fuck up two years ago. I am the Worst Pessimist in the World, but I think enough people have and will continue to wake upand if I'm wrong, I'll help make Harper's Ferry look like a frakking Sunday picnic

10 What a tone-deaf idiot. This is exactly the type of bullshit we're in the process of stopping in Washington.
Somebody needs to tell that fuck-up that there was a lot more in that message we sent a couple of weeks ago. We intend to put a dead stop to the leftist lurch that the "progressives" have been on these past two years.

The American people may have voted that way, but they are stupid.
FYNQ.

12 ...and don't get me started on how much this buffoondoesn't know about economics. We are sick and tired of their class warfare rhetoric and their efforts to divide the country.

Answer:
He said to himself, "How will we be able to destroy the Capitalist System and control everybody's behavior if we don't start with ObamaCare and grow the size of Government?"
Anymore SoftBall Questions?

Point taken, well played, sir. Actually, it's been longer, but more visible in recent years.
We do realize, don't we, just how long it's going to take to return the adults to power and stop this shit?

17 The irony of a Democratic senator, who became a multimillionaire during his years of "public service" talking about the need to tax millionaires, is so fucking funny I forgot to laugh.

Posted by: SGT Dan at December 03, 2010 07:26 PM (HBTr7)

18 The only thing the Democrats care about is retaining their cushy jobs, which they keep through voter fraud. As for what the people want... that doesn't even make the list, because we're obviously tooo stoopid to know what is good for us.

20 They are not tax cuts. They are the current rates. How on earthshould 40% of anyone’s income go to the government?
The democrats want to cut the legs out from under small business etc.. to fulfill their hard-on for confiscation and redistribution and big nanny state government.
The democrats want to raise tax rates - back to the Clinton tax hikes. They do, sit back and watch the economy nose dive.
Tax increases + Obamacare = torpedo the economy.

21 I think Chuck is correct. I ran for office (and got elected). Left of center district. Lot's of Dems voted for me, or I wouldn't have gotten in.

This is what I heard:

Obamacare is Bad
Reduce the regulatory State / Nanny state
Reduce spending
Get the banks and wall street under control
Get rid of the Bush Tax cuts for the highest earners.

Those were the main issues. Very little mention of social issues.

23 What's Schumer's justification?

"Because I can" sounds about right.

Posted by: Guy of Gisbourne at December 03, 2010 11:06 PM (4dgTj)

24 Because UpChuck Schumer just knows better than we do. After all, he got a 1600 on his SAT! (Old-school, much harder and a perfect score.)

His arrogance is legendary, even in Congress, and he's the biggest camera-hog in the Entire Government.
