SCHUMER’S GRAND PLAN
Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer has been busy for months, he says, working on “a strong, bold, sharp-edged and common-sense economic agenda” aimed at the middle class. The New York Democrat told ABC’s “This Week” that he’s been talking up his ideas with Democrats — and even Trump voters wearing “Proud Deplorable” T-shirts.
“This economic message platform is going to resonate. It’s what we were missing, and it’s not going to be baby steps. It’s going to be bold. We’re coming out with it this summer — within a month,” Mr. Schumer said. “Democrats will try to pass it legislatively for a year and campaign on it in 2018. It’s what we were missing in 2016 and in the past. You lose an election, you don’t blame other people, you blame yourself.”
