Chuck Schumer Claims Capitalism has Failed….Wrong!

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has round himself in the has been finding himself in the news a lot in the last couple of days.

Earlier today it was reported that he gave Hillary Clinton and the democrats a piece of his mind. He told them to look in the mirror and blame themselves for her loss. It wasn’t due to sexism or the Russians. It was their fault!

“The old Adam Smith idea of competition, it’s gone,” said Schumer to ABC’s George Stephanopoulos in a Sunday-aired interview for This Week. “Vulture capitalism” was now the order of the day, he said.

Schumer and other Democrats pushed for increasingly centralized economic planning under the banner: “A Better Deal,” framing the American Dream as served by a federally mandated $15 minimum wage and unspecified “paid family and sick leave.”

Schumer’s remarks largely drew from a Monday-published op-ed of his in The New York Times.

Neo-Marxist class warfare was a permanent theme, with Schumer deriding “corporate interests,” “the super wealthy,” “elites,” special interests,” and “the powerful” while extolling “working people.”

Schumer said, “We are the party on the side of working people,” he continued, “The Republican Party seemingly exists to work on behalf of the wealthy and the corporate interests.”

The bitter, old man tried to make socialism sound promising. Although it never will be.

[Democrats will] increase people’s pay… we’re gonna reduce their everyday expenses… we’re gonna provide workers the tools they need for the 21st century economy. Simple put – what do Democrats stand for? A better deal for working people, higher wages, lower costs, and the tools for a 21st century economy.

“Too many Americans don’t know what we stand for,” Schumer concluded, stating that people didn’t realize just what Hillary Clinton could have done for the country.

I know one thing for sure: she would have run it into the ground!
