Skip to comments.Schumer: Health bill's unpopularity 'has peaked' -- legislation will 'become more and more popular'
Posted on 12/24/2009 6:11:45 AM PST by Def Conservative
Meeting reporters after passage of the Democratic national health care bill, Sen. Charles Schumer seemed sensitive to the commentary pointing out that the Democratic legislation is overwhelmingly unpopular with the American people. "I don't believe that," Schumer said. "I believe that the negativity that Leader McConnell and others have continually displayed on the floor has peaked, and now, when people learn what's actually in the bill and all the good it does, it will become more and more popular."

Let your friends and family know.
How does Schumer figure this is gonna happen?
Those of us who disagree will have to be re-educated, obviously.
Tell a lie often enough......
Let’s make Chuckie’s prediction as accurate as that of the porkulous preventing unemployment from reaching 8%
Just wait til the jubilant brain dead obamite underclass start reaching the clinics demanding their free healthcare
Because the voters ACORN employees invent in time for 2010 will say they love Obamacare.
Another pearl of wisdom from Up-Chuckie Schumer. I knew New Yorkers must be stupid to have elected Hillary! but this guy takes the cake. (No. I’m not referring to New York FReepers. Sadly you aren’t the majority in NY these days but I suspect your day is coming!)
Yeah, Chuckie, the American people will happily embrace this monstrosity once they learn that they start paying immediately for “benefits” that become available in three years.
Honest to God, Chucky really is an idiot.
This from the say idiot who believes that if we take folks weapons away, their will be no criminals with weapons on the streets of American. The guy is a total bozo and has no idea of what he is saying. People keep voting these morons into the Senate and House.
Just another attempt at a self-fulfilling prophecy.
It won't work. Providers are taking action right now to adjust to this bill. Everything wrong with medical care from this day forward will be the fault of Obama and Democrats. They can't escape it.
I guess the test will be how much the congress hears from their constituents during the break. Since it’s the Holidays they might not hear much and that would reinforce their belief that the public has lost interest.
Are these people ALL on drugs? Or are they just so arrogent and out of touch with the American people they can’t see what we want. Or maybe they just do not give a damn. I vote for #3. Vote these bastards out. OH and Obama is a Bastard by defination.
Dream on clown face.
Try “become less and less popular” as voters find out how really nasty this bill is.
And why would your legislature pass a major bill that is unpopular?
Higher taxes and no program until 2014 is not going to increase popularity. Not to mention the immediate cuts to medicare.
The marxists are full of sh*t.
They just think the sheeple will forget. Believe me, many of the masses of stupid americans that voted for their own demise do not even know there is a Deathcare bill and have no idea how horribly their lives will be affected.
They will expect top notch care and all they are going to get is 3rd world service.
Worse than stupid.
Did Schumer read the bill? How does he know what good he claims it will do?
I aint letting that happen.
“How does Schumer figure this is gonna happen?”
Schumer, your unpopularity has yet to peak.
Until they find out their premiums have doubled, their state taxes have doubled, their benefits have been cut in half, and their parents have been put on the euthanasia list.
The Democrats’ popularity peaked last November, been sliding downhill ever since.
By the willing media useful idiots ramming happy talk down our throat 24/7.
The problem is, it won't work. Everyone will still hate it.
Hussein and Company haven’t made an accurate prediction yet (except that they would be able to buy their own senators), so I can see Chuckie saying, “OH, SHUCKS!” and flushing himself down the toilet. Good riddance!
Only half the American people are paying the bill, with a half again paying the majority of it. Chuckie and his pals know that as long as they can promise free stuff to half the population they'll be fine. Add in a little amnesty for illegals and a few million new government union workers/voters running healthcare and the Democrats will be untouchable.
Our day would have been coming but Giuliani decided not
to against Gillibrand. I guess he didn’t want to miss those Yankee playoff games next Oct? Thanks for helping the team that really counts! Putz
Has anyone actually read it? Anyone?
Arrogant and out of touch. They think they are so much SMARTER than all of us, that they should decide is best for us. Hopefully when they are home for the holidays, they will get a glimpse of reality.
Chucky’s statement will be used against him in his trial
just this one thing...Karl Rove said this morning that the cuts to Medicare aren’t immediate. Oh no, they’re too cynical for that.
He said they start right after the 2010 ELECTIONS !!!!!
Not necessarily true, there are hundreds of small newspapers and radio stations that would carry our ads. We can use billboards, yard signs, and news-making activities such as the D.C. march.We can still hit the market if we do our homework.
What do seniors read and listen to? Where do people who can't take another hit to the pocketbook including paying their own benefits if they're out of a job or fines get their news. And how will they feel about jail time if they can't pay, who will watch their kids when the state locks them up.Also need to expose more of the backroom deals, etc.
The Republicans have to make this an #1 priority! Damn the jobs bill or any other trick these traiors pull, stop Obamacare!
I won’t say what I wish for the e-steamed (as in steaming pile) Chuck U. Schumer for Christmas.
This was rammed through on Christmas eve as an up yours. Theirs is coming.
Going to try and ignore this for the next two days, I want to enjoy the time with family and friends.
This is Rahm Emmanuel’s big talking point of the week, word for word, that he’s been selling to the weaker Rats.
Only with those who are to get the free handouts, jackass....
For the rest of us:
It will be several years before any American will get any benefits from Obamacare.
But in the meantime it will have to be funded, and I seriously doubt Americans will get used to seeing smaller paychecks.
Well, they had better stop being so civil and refined about it and come up with some decent, hard-hitting talking points already. They seem to forget that half this country is brain-dead.
Honestly, I've seen better ads against this posted on YouTube.
THIS is the Kool-Aid the Democrats have been drinking.
They know the country is opposed to this, but they are telling themselves the country will love it once they see it.
Imagine a woman with long, long hair telling her stylist not to cut her hair short, and they stylist saying to herself “I’m going to cut it short anyway, because I’m sure she’ll love it when she sees it.” That’s they same thinking the Democrats are using.
The media has kept this part of the bill quiet. Don't they realize they're also going to be victims of this bill, or do they think they're somehow exempt?
Bank all the money you can in a safety deposit box. You're going to need it later. And for gosh sakes, stop sending money to the politicians. Keep as much of it as you can for your own family. Now is not the time to be voluntary slaves for Oboma.
PS-I wondered if there might be something going on in Giuliani’s personal life right now. I have noticed that his newest wife hasn’t been at his side much lately. Otherwise you would think he’d at least be interested in the Governorship.
According to libturd Schmucky, people love higher taxes, less service and more intrusive government. Why not make every family by a Chevy next?
Ain’t gonna happen Schumcky.
Doesn’t this just point out the major problem caused by the 17th amendment.
Oh, we very much would like to know what's in the bill. I dare you show us the whole thing by reading it into the Congressional Record, Mr. Back-room-deal Schumer!
I met Schumer once. The man just oozes slime...
If it is so friggin’ wonderful why don’t you have the same health coverage, Chuckie?
