Schumer: Lost Your Job Because of Obamacare? ‘That’s a Family Value’
http://www.tpnn.com ^ | february 10, 2014 | matthew burke

In response to the recent CBO report that Obamacare will cause millions of job losses, Schumer told David Gregory of Meet the Press on Sunday: 

“What CBO said is many American workers would have freedom. Now that’s a good word. Freedom to do things that they couldn’t do. The single mom who’s raising three kids has to keep the job because of healthcare, can now spend some time raising those kids. That’s a family value"

Just picture the MSM reaction if Ronald Reagan, or either of the Presidents Bush, had said that.

No job, no money, no home, no hope and no future? That’s a GOOD thing according to the Rats.

Hey Chucky Shmucky - How about freedom to starve and live under a bridge because you have no income?

It’s amazing to me that all these commies chant the same mantra with little variations all at once almost like a co-ordinated effort.

s/not really amazing because I know they are coordinating to change the social meme by repetitious propagandizing.

What a total shame this is! The age old Philosophy that “you give a man a fish and he eats for a day; you teach a man to fish and he eats forever” is DEAD IN AMERICA!

Why doesn't Schmuck Schumer give up his job so he qualifies for obamacare. These corrupt bastards are destroying the job market and trying to convince people they don't want to work. What a bunch of arrogant scum.

Schumer has taken up residency in Unicorn city... where he spends his days jumping sharks.

We don't need "freedom" from a job.

What we need is freedom from Schmucky Schumer and his tyrannical ilk.

They are essentially saying that poverty is good and you are better off with the government taking care of you is better than working hard and earning a living.

I work two jobs. I make about $54,000. If I quit my lesser job and lower my income to $40,000, the subsidy I would get for health insurance would be about $4,000 (half the cost of a Silver plan on the exchange). So, by not working and earning that $14,000, I would get $4,000. I’m still $10,000 short . . . more than that, actually, because I bought health insurance directly from the insurance company and NOT off of the O’care exchange for $2,000 less than what is offered on the exchange. So I would really be $12,000 short. I never have money left over at month’s end, so, other than having to pay my mortgage, my health insurance, homeowner’s insurance, flood insurance, amenities fees, property taxes, fill my car’s gas tank, pay my electric bill, and buy food, I would be on easy street and have “leisure time.” Isn’t it pretty to think so. Schumer is an idiot.

Of course, these crappola-spinning democRATS make no mention of how all of these people will be able to pursue their “dreams” with no income to pay their bills. Maybe that’s where the pixie dust and unicorns come in, ya’ think?

Chuckles' PR says he got a 1600 on his college boards.
I'm not buying that for a "New York minute".

No he's not. He and his ilk are evil. Pure EVIL! Murderous, treacherous, deceitful, lying evil.
