Since people complain endlessly that we don't get enough threads dumping on this asshole every time anyone complains about any other democrat, here you go: fuck Chuck Schumer.

Mod Edit:


Frank Thorp V @frankthorp

Schumer seems pretty set in $1.6 billion for border security (instead of the $5 billion the WH wants): "The $1.6 billion for border security negotiated by Democrats and Republicans is our position....a shutdown is on their back. Stick to the $1.6 billion."

Sahil Kapur @sahilkapur

Schumer isn’t a fan of Trump’s $5 billion request for a wall; he praises the $1.6b Senate framework for border security and adds: “If there’s any shutdown it’s on President Trump’s back.”

Money well spent tbh. The poor and homeless and sick and oppressed and you name it wouldn't need it.

It would be really cool to have Democrats in power that actually gave a shit about the working class or anyone that wasn't white.

I'm gonna guess this is in the context of the upcoming budget fight.

You don't cave on something like this unless you're getting some damn good concessions, right Chuck...None of your constituents want this.

I'm talking like universal health care-level of concessions.

I still don't understand why people think a wall would work. Democrats should be pledging $0 to it.

Schumer needs to go, he helped protect Facebook: https://www.businessinsider.com/chuck-schumer-facebook-mark-warner-2018-11

  • Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer intervened with one of his colleagues on Facebook's behalf this summer, amid growing sentiment against the company, according to a new report in The New York Times.
  • Schumer told Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), one of the company's most prominent congressional critics, to tone down his criticism.
  • He also kept Facebook's lobbyists informed of his efforts to protect the social networking giant, according to the report.
  • News of Schumer's effort on behalf of Facebook comes amid growing discontent among some Democrats over the party's corporate ties and pro-corporate policies.
  • Schumer was reelected Wednesday as the Democrats' leader in the Senate hours before The Times published its report.

If its just 1.6 for border protection then thats actually not bad, they usually get 4 or 5.

How about you tell Trump he got his border security money by sending armed service members to the border to "protect" it and send that $1.6B to actually fixing shit in our dilapidated country you stupid fuck.

He’s literally made concessions on simply being promised by the Turtle that he’ll consider thing.

Another classic aeolist OP

It’s 1.6 billion for border security, not a wall, which has been the Dems’ position in every budget deal for getting concessions on other domestic spending needs.

even the trump administration isn't serious about building an actual physical wall across the entire mexican border. this funding is what he wants when he talks about the wall.

he wants more money for his racist gestapo and their child prison camps. any democrat who votes to put a single cent toward that should be tarred and feathered.
