Chuck Schumer just threw his entire party under the bus by claiming Democrats blew it by focusing on health care reform. Why, Chuck? Because it wasn’t the single-payer fix that could have actually addressed the problem? No, that’s not Chucky’s reasoning. Instead, the third-ranking Democratic Senator points out those uninsured people only represent around 5% of registered voters, so why do anything to help them? From the link:

“After passing the stimulus, Democrats should have continued to propose middle-class-oriented programs and built on the partial success of the stimulus, but unfortunately Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them,” Schumer said. “We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem—health care reform.”

The third-ranking Senate Democrat noted that just about 5 percent of registered voters in the United States lacked health insurance before the implementation of the law, arguing that to focus on a problem affecting such “a small percentage of the electoral made no political sense.”

What a nice sentiment coming from a powerful Democrat the day before Thanksgiving.
