SEN. SCHUMER: GIVE BACK THE MONEY
Chuck Schumer is the lead Senate Democrat working on immigration reform--he gets to decide whether millions of undocumented immigrants will be imprisoned or legalized. Yet he’s also taken over $100,000 in campaign contributions from the private prison industry. Is it any surprise he’s pushing for billions more dollars spent on increased enforcement and detention of immigrants?

Athenae has the latest on how our worthless politicians are failing those in the path of Sandy.
I want to pour a special measure of scorn for Schumer. He is a very powerful Senator. He has access to microphones. He has the ability to get in front of a camera. He is in a position to do something. But he does nothing. What a FAIL. Read below the fold...

Izvestia-on-the-Hudson "reports" today that Senator Schumer, "scorched by Republican opposition to the idea of a new public program like Medicare," (scorched? what're they gonna do, take away his birthday?) offers a "middle ground": a public plan based on a set of principles, the first of which is that it won't be supported by public funds:
The public plan must be self-sustaining. It should pay claims with money raised from premiums and co-payments. It should not receive tax revenue or appropriations from the government.
