#10 Senator Schumer, It is time to go!

 Charles Schumer

Senator Charles Schumer was first elected in 1998 to the Senate.  He is up for re-election in 2010.

Schumer Offers Major Revision To Health Care Reform Bill To Address Affordability Concerns

Proposal Would Expand Hardship Waiver To Exempt More Americans From Mandate To Buy Insurance If Affordable Plans Are Not Available–Current Bill Sets Threshold At 10% Of Income; Schumer Amendment Lowers Bar To 8% of Income

Schumer Amendment Would Also Eliminate Penalty For Americans Who Fail To Buy Insurance In First Year Of Overhaul; For Second Year, Penalty Is Reduced By 50 percent

Editorial Note:  This is what the Senator has not “revealed” in his effort to save money for the poor:  It is true the poor will not be forced to pay for insurance if they cannot afford it.  The other half of the truth is that all of the Democratic speeches for the last several months and the President all concur that no one will be without insurance.  Connect the dots and I guess the “hardship” cases will be funded by the government (taxpayer money)?  A bill has already been drafted to insure all “illegal aliens” will be given amnesty.  This will automatically make them eligible for the public offering of insurance.  Do we believe the amnesty bill will happen (thus covering the aliens) and the government will not “bail out” the poor?

The Senator has helped to make his case, so we will let him tell you in his own words, what he is has been thinking and doing recently.  In the following video, Senator Schumer declares the American People don’t really care about the pork projects in the stimulus.

Pork Projects definition: Funding created by a legislature for projects that are not essential but are sought because they pump money and resources into the local districts of the legislators.

When he made that speech what were some of the Pork Projects he was referring to in the stimulus that the “American public would not care about”?

Questionable or Non-Stimulative Spending:

  • $50 million for the National Endowment for the Arts Editorial Note: These are the people who have made all the posters and artwork promoting the President’s healthcare project,  and other items on his agenda. All of the American taxpayers have paid for this propaganda material
  • $2 billion for the Neighborhood Stabilization Fund   Editorial Note:  providing funds to organizations such as ACORN, which  as been accused of practicing unlawful voter registration in recent elections and encouraging citizens on other illegal activities
  • $300 million for the Energy Efficient Appliance Rebate Program  Editorial Note: There is nothing about this that creates jobs, only continues to give away taxpayer dollars that we do not have
  • $2 billion to support the manufacturing of advanced vehicle batteries Editorial Note: These were stipulated to be in the form of grants
  • $1 billion for Community Development Block Grants
  • $198 million to authorize payments to certain Filipino veterans from WWII  Editorial Note: most of them do not live in this country
  • $300 million for federal procurement of plug-in and fuel efficient vehicles Editorial Note:  This is definitely not feasible for states with large land masses where cities are widespread across vast geographic areas.
  • $8 billion for a High Speed Passenger Rail Program, after the House did not include any funding for the program and the Senate included $2 billion, which will fund at least one project from Las Vegas to Los Angeles
  • $15 million for historic preservation at historically black colleges and universities
  • $170 million for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration to research the causes, effects, and ways to mitigate climate change
  • $200 million for Americorps and other paid “volunteerism” programs   Editorial Note: Volunteer means no money, and there should be no government interference
  • $400 million for NASA to accelerate climate research missions
  • $5.5 billion for federal buildings (GSA), including $4.5 billion to convert federal buildings into “high-performance green buildings” and $450 million for a new headquarters for the Department of Homeland Security
  • $210 million for a new grant program to modify and upgrade local fire stations  Editorial Note: Why can’t individual states or communities address these needs, as they are specific to areas?
  • $25 million for the Smithsonian Institution for maintenance backlogs
  • $650 million for Digital-to-Analog Converter Box Coupons Editiorial note: Doe the government assume there is a “right for every American” to have a television?

These items make it a certainty that future generations will be paying for the money used by special interest groups.  

Here is a video clip where Senator Schumer is justifying the money spent by the government on “good nationalization” of the banks.  This is a very few months after the largest stimulus bill in history was passed by the House.

What about our rights?  In the debate over what to pass for Healthcare Reform, they are trampling all over the rights of individuals.  It is our right to choose the best healthplan option for us.  It is our right if we do not want insurance.  We the people have the right to tell them what we want.  The government does not have the right to nationalize the banks in any of the defined framework given in the Constitution or the Declaration.   The government does not have the right to determine where billions of  dollars of our money should go as outlined by the constitution.  This is the same Senator who is fighting to get a “fairness” doctrine in place that will curtail our Freedom of speec, a right given to the people in the Constitution.

Senator Schumer, because you have forgotten who you are working for and also forgotten our Constitutional rights, it is time to go!

A wise and frugal government, which shall leave men free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned – this is the sum of good government.
Thomas Jefferson

Schumer, one of the dynamic duo of duplicity, has needed to go since before he even got to the Senate. His record is, on so many issues, open treason to the oath he took to uphold the Constitution.

When it comes to Schumer there are only two things that I can support; Tar & Feathers…

Schumer is only one of many that need to go. Career politicians are ruining our Country. We need to be united as voters an eliminate this corrupt and power hungry people.

Take control of your country. Join me and others at http://coipac.org. We are organizing to remove stale, corrupt, power hungry, lazy, inept politicians. We must be the people to demand that our elected officials follow his or her constituents.
