Sen. Schumer brags up health bill pork

Senior Democratic New York Senator Charles Schumer isn’t shy about the pork that’s in the new health care bill passed by the Senate this week; in fact, he’s bragging up the pork. “Every state got something,” Schumer said, according to a recent Bloomberg.com article.

Less concerned with New York jobs than with maintaining a Dem majority, Sen. Schumer has also been quotes in other reports as saying that any state that didn’t get something in the ObamaCare bill “didn’t have a very effective Senator.”

By which he means Republicans, who stood by principal for the first time in maybe a decade or so and refused to play ball with the majority. That’s why the vote was only 60-40.
