Chuck Schumer: Passing Obamacare in 2010 Was a Mistake

I Really Really Dislike This Guy
I’d say passing Obamacare at any time was a mistake. The program was and is a train wreck which is still piling up. The Dems know it. The American people know it. And it is the reason, to a large degree, why the Senate and the House are in GOP hands.

From a purely political standpoint, pushing Obamacare through without even half of the American people on board was a pretty boneheaded move.
“We took their mandate and put all of our focus on the wrong problem—health care reform.”
The third-ranking Senate Democrat noted that just about 5 percent of registered voters in the United States lacked health insurance before the implementation of the law, arguing that to focus on a problem affecting such “a small percentage of the electoral made no political sense.”

Of course he says this now.
