Democrats Say the Darndest Things: Schumer Acknowledges Americans Want to Cut Size of Government/Repeal Obamacare

Apologies for the slow blogging, but have been quite busy editing the final draft of my dissertation.  Via Hotair, caught something revealing would-be Democratic Senate Leader Charles Schumer said:

Schumer, who handily won re-election this year, acknowledged the anger vented by tea partyers and others during the election but insisted that didn’t extend to upper-income tax cuts.

Voters “did say ‘repeal health care,’ they did say ‘reduce the size of government.’ But not a single one of them from the tea party or anywhere said ‘give tax breaks to the wealthiest,’” Schumer said in a rare moment of candor.

This led Allahpundit to quip:

So the midterms were a referendum on repealing ObamaCare, by the Democrats’ own admission? There’s your tax-cut compromise, then: Republicans will agree to let the cuts lapse for households earning over a quarter mil in return for the left agreeing to torpedo our new health-care boondoggle, per the voters’ wishes according to none other than Charles Schumer himself.

There you have it fellas (& gals), Charles Schumer believes voters want to reduce the size of government and repeal Obamacare.  I trust this Democrat to get the ball rolling on helping them achieve these goals.
