Bipartisanship is not dead. It’s so nice of Charles Schumer to reach across the aisle and graciously advise the Republicans on what they need to do in order to avoid election slaughter in November:
Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) on Sunday warned Republicans that they would suffer at the polls if they continued to push for a repeal of the president’s healthcare reform bill.
“If Republicans make that their number one issue, the repeal of healthcare, they are certainly going to lose the election, in the House and the Senate and the presidency,” said Schumer on CBS’s “Face the Nation”.
“Bottom line is most Americans are not for repeal. If you look at all the polls, a little more than a third are for repeal,”** he said.
According to most polls I’ve seen lately, even post-SCOTUS decision, more than 50 percent favor repeal of all or at least parts of Obamacare, which of course includes an incredibly high percentage of Republicans and even a quarter of Dems. Nobody — with the possible exceptions of select Berkeley sanitariums and motivational meetings for “Obamacare still a BFD” t-shirt salespeople (“Kool Aid is for closers only!”) — honestly believes Republicans will ruin their chances in November by supporting repeal.
In some good news for Republicans, the Supreme Court ruling is energizing opposition to the 2010 healthcare law.
In the new poll, more than half of all registered voters – 53 percent – said they were more likely to vote for their member of Congress if he were running on a platform of repealing the law, up from 46 percent before the ruling.
Also, Schumer joined the White House and other Dems in insisting that the Obamacare law isn’t a tax, and is therefore unconstitutional:
