The third-highest ranking Senate Democrat, Chuck Schumer, spoke at the National Press Club yesterday. In his speech, he threw Obamacare under the bus.
He suggested that perhaps Democrats should’ve worked on other issues, such as the economy. According to the Daily Caller, Schumer believes that Democrats should’ve worked on a middle-class agenda instead of passing Obamacare:
“Unfortunately, Democrats blew the opportunity the American people gave them” by electing President Obama and a Democratic-controlled Congress in 2008.
“We took their mandate and put all our focus on the wrong problem.”
