From Dan Stein’s Latest Op-Ed:
Whatever else one might think about Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), we can all agree that he is a very savvy and partisan politician. With his party in political trouble over the state of the economy, declining middle class wages, and the disastrous rollout of Obamacare, Schumer is busy setting a trap to distract Republicans from the core issues that concern American voters and trick them into doing the Democrats’ political bidding.
In a January speech to the Center for American Progress (CAP), a left-leaning think tank that functions as the Obama administration’s farm team, Schumer astutely identified the issue that will determine the outcome of 2014 and 2016 elections: Widespread angst about the decline of the American middle class. “Since 2001, median income in the U.S. has declined by 10 percent,” he told the CAP audience.
