The bipartisan deal to reopen the government and temporarily lift the debt ceiling includes one small Obamacare elementa provision that says peoples incomes must be verified before they can get Obamacare subsidies to help pay their insurance premiums.
But this was not a concession to Republicans, Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) told CNNs Jake Tapper on Wednesday.
Its, you know, it is, frankly, a bit of a fig leaf, which we were happy to give, but that was not a negotiation. That was not what Ted Cruz and the others started to demand that we give them.

Chuck, you prick. Everyone knows this is true, but you’re not supposed to rub it in our faces.
Watch Schmucky howl when the 2014 sequester cuts kick in.
What goes around comes around you friggin socialist pig.
And so far, we've heard nothing but bad things about Obamacare.
And as a reminder, Excellus of New York State has dropped it's Medicaid policies....about 100,000 New Yorkers.
Good thing for the GOPe’s like Boner and McConnell that the tiny fig leaf is ample enough to cover their pathetic manhoods....
A fig leaf? I think the Republicans, with a few exceptions got a fig tree shoved up where the sun don’t shine.
WHAT fig leaf?
I don’ see no steeeeeenking fig leaf.
Chuckie’s statment just weakens the position of the establishment Repubs like Boehner and McCain because it confirms everything the Tea Party has been saying. The GOPe crowd is willing to give the Dems everything they want and get nothing in return. When push comes to shove they will always fold. Schumer isn’t that bright and crowing like this only helps the Tea Pary in the long run by vindicating everything they’ve been saying.
Chucky owes his two little pixies, Juan McCain and Linda Graham a big, wet smooch! They done good.
It is very seldom that I find myself nodding in agreement with the senior senator from New York; but it is very hard to avoid doing so here...
The Republican party died yesterday.
D’amato was right about him.
I read today that negotiations over an (gasp) ACTUAL BUDGET were part of that “fig leaf”. The battle continues.
Take a lesson, Rubio. Stay away from this guy on immigration.
I have real hatred for RATS and their enablers....
And the good news is, with the blatant defeat of the GOP, the TEA Party becomes the more viable alternative.
They own it. 110%.
