Skip to comments.Chuck Schumer: 'Tea Party Does Not Favor Cutting Taxes'
Posted on 12/13/2010 1:42:53 PM PST by rightistight
Something tells me that most of the Democrats did not get the message of last month's election. Apparently they prefer to shove their head in the sand (and most likely somewhere else), and pretend that it never happened.
And then there is New York Senator Chuck Schumer. Not only does Senator Schumer deny that the election had any real significance, but that it might have had the opposite affect that people believe it did. In a recent interview, Schumer stated:
Our colleagues on the other side of the aisle said, Did you hear the mandate of the election? Well, I ran this year, I got 66 percent of the vote in my state. And I saw lots of people and lots of angry people. . . . But not a single one of them, from the tea party or anywhere else, said give tax breaks to the millionaires.
That's weird because I don't know if I've ever heard of a Tea Partier who was against tax cuts. But hey, what are facts to Chuck Schumer, right?

Let’s see .... Tea Party .... No Taxation without Representation .....
No, I don’t see a connection either < /s>
This Rat must be a product of our 25th place Public Enducation system.
TEA: Taxed Enough Already. Why would any liberal think that is related to taxes?
And Scummie is saying this because??
When you are back to the wall, you lash out with whatever is available, or you capitulate. The Dems, The Leftists are lashing out with bullshit.
They apparently are using the old confusion tactic of trying to make we the people think our actions are backfiring on us, and trying to cause us pause in our direction to regain our government by arrogantly steaming ahead at full speed.
hey Chuck...which taxes are being cut?
Let's cut everyone's taxes except for millionaires in New York.
I forget. What is the salary of U.S. Senators?
I’m a Tea Partier and Chuck The Schmuck does not speak for me.
That is perhaps the saddest statement I'll ever hear in my lifetime.
Along with, "More people get their news from ABC News than any other source."
What is on the table is whether tax rates will go up or not. The question before us wasn’t a tax cut, it was a question of maintaining the current rates.
Less taxes, smaller government, less restriction on the private market.
That about it folks?
Schumer, I’m tea party and I am for cutting taxes until you are a penniless drunk living on skid row.
Prominent Tea Partiers including Jim DeMint have expressed opposition to the current tax compromise circulating in Washington. In exchange for a two-year extension of the Bush tax cuts, Republicans have agreed to Democrats’ demand for additional spending approximately paralleling the first stimulus bill. This stealth “Stimulus II” has been called out by no less than Charles Krauthammer, who calls the tax compromise the “Swindle of the Year”: http://www.denverpost.com/opinion/ci_16820157
I doubt Chuck Schumer wants a spotlight thrown on this, but if his comments serve that purpose, great. The Bush tax-cut extensions are vital, but it’s also vital that we address out-of-control Democrat spending.
wow... its worse that the GOP didn’t get the message.
Taxed Enough Already. That means we don’t want tax increases. And that’s exactly what undoing the Bush tax cuts would do.
Just to avoid further inadventant mistakes, and in case Shumer is reading Free Republic: Chuck, we also want government spending to be cut. A Whole Lot.
Degenerate marxist animals like Schumer must be dispatched with extreme prejudice if this Republic is to survive.
