“First let me say this, this was one of the most difficult decisions that I had to make. I studied long and hard, read the agreement a whole bunch of times, had many, many, many meetings and interviews...

Senator Charles (“Chuck”) Schumer of New York faces a particularly tough choice: back Obama’s Iran deal and anger many of his New York Jewish constituents, or oppose the deal and anger Obama and much of the Democratic Party leadership.

My prediction: Schumer will cave to Obama and cling to his own long-nourished...

Chuck Schumer (D-NY) might just be the worst Democratic Policy and Communications Center head of all time.

Or, the best, depending on how invested you are to Congressional Dems’ current messaging strategy.

Yesterday, Schumer stood up at the National Press Club and unequivocally threw President Obama and his coalition under the bus for...

Sure, I disagree with Marco Rubio on the Gang of 8 immigration bill, particularly the amnesty part.

But what’s most galling is that Rubio appears to have been played by Chuck Schumer on the Democratic side, and McCain/Graham on the Republican side, suckered into being the point man drawing fire on a...

Warren Buffett has an op-ed in The NY Times bemoaning the fact that he and other super-wealthy investors pay a lower percentage of their income in taxes than their secretaries and other lower-paid staff members.  This is an argument frequently heard from Democrats.
