SCHUMER’S GRAND PLAN

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

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.”
