Schumer’s post-election epiphany. My comment yesterday on Senator Schumer’s belated insights on Obamacare is being echoed today in various national media outlets that have added some revealing detail. Besides the senator from New York admitting that “the law has been disastrous for Democrats”, he now, yes now, acknowledges what the rest of us argued years ago. The most important statistic he redredges is that only “about 5% of the electorate” benefits from Obamacare. The more important truth is that in the large, 100% of the electorate and everyone else suffers from the steady destruction of one of the world’s finest healthcare systems. And this plague has yet to run its course over our fair land.
The liberal leader of the Senate rues the mistake Dems made in overlooking the economy during the 2009 depth of the depression, and instead focused on something that only appealed to the nation’s weak thinkers. In Schumer’s words – “Unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them. We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem: health-care reform.” (more here)
