I am not sure where the madness ends. Where is the change that we were promised.

The stock market has dropped over 3000 since Obama became president, but it is not just the President. Let’s thank Congress and the Senate as well. They have sold their country down the river for their own benefit. That may be my opinion, but it seems to be a growing opinion of other citizens as well.

It is a real disgrace. If theses individuals were working for a private sector company they would be fired for misuse of funds.

For a Senator to get up and say that the American Citizens don’t care about the extra spending just shows how out of touch Mr. Schumer is. Actually, all of Washington is out of touch and it is now time to clean house. Everyone needs to go! Everyone in Washington Republicans and Democrats need to go! While this might not be a true reality Americans will stand up and take their country back.

This country is for its citizens not the politicians!

I would like to comment on this. The Democrats had control of Congress the last couple of years of the Bush administration. They blocked bills to regulate the markets. Barney Frank and Senator Schumer(is on Finance commitee) in 2002 said there was no crisis with Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac when they found accounting irregularites. They made sure there was no additional oversight. Don’t believe me? Google it.

What would this SHEISTER do without a camera in his face?? He keeps getting voted in because 1) NYers are stupid 2)You voted in Hillary! 3)You keep seeing UpChuck on that big bright box you are mesmerized by watching(CBS, NBC, ABC, MSLSD, CNN) and think “wow, he really does care about NY – he’s everywhere!”

purplelilac3084 01/31/2011 4:11am

Vote NO to raising the debt ceiling!
Cut up your credit cards!
No more money for President Obama! Investments? You mean SPENDING!
Education needs to be reformed! Not given any MORE money!
It is time to FIRE the teachers you are NOT doing their job!
We pay way to much money already and they use it for their paychecks, their free healthcare, their pensions!
They are overpaid! They should not get free healthcare, they should have to pay a percentage and so should YOU!
Social Security is what they should get! NOT pensions!Just like everyone normal american.
We ARE broke! Do you not get it?

Senator Schumer:
Americans are getting fed-up with politics-as-usual and are beginning to investigate the causes of their concern. Your record of failure and apparent lack of understanding in the finance and labor areas suggests either 1) you are incompetent or 2) you are “playing politics” instead of attending to the tasks you were elected to perform. I suspect the latter.

I strongly recommend that you wake up to the fact that the people who elected you are starting to notice your monumental failure to protect their interests. We don’t need lip service – we need real change in Congress and in the political process itself.

Get off the backside of your butt and do SOMETHING for this country. Rip the environmentalists a new body cavity and get our own oil in our system so we can save the 6.1 TRILLION dollars the arabs are going to reap from this latest increase in a barrel of oil. What must we do to heat our homes? Paying more than 3 bucks a gallon for heating oil is ludicrous because our government can’t stand up for us. Give more money to the world, The cost of making ethanol is costing more than it’s worth in burning in a car. All that’s accomplishing is to drive up the cost of food. Nice going, a real snooker job on congress for this fiasco. Go environmentalists and Al Gore, wreck this country as fast as you can.

purplelilac3084 10/28/2010 3:11am

Look at the money trail!
This man is evil! Do you see his commercial about no tax breaks for oil companies, instead we should give to windpower? Hmmm, we have to have oil for our cars, and ALMOST EVERY PRODUCT we make! Wind power is not the answer! Spain has 21% unemployment from them going GREEN! They have NO JOBS!
Democrats think that 450,000 jobs lost every week are GOOD! Wake up people, that is 2 million a MONTH! Next month the seasonal workers will be added to the roll, besides the 450,000 !!
VOTE OUT these senators that are in OFFICE!
We need JOBS, and they will not help us…in fact in 2 years of Obama, we have lost more jobs than ever before…
Schumer is a PROGRESSIVE !

purplelilac3084 10/06/2010 3:14am

This is a man who stood on TV and said THE PEOPLE DON’T CARE ABOUT PORK!
Well, I think we the people do care that you foolishy waste our tax dollars!
This man called the airline stuart a bitch for asking him to turn his phone off! How ignorant! In 2002, he went along with Barney Frank saying Fannie & Freddie were doing fine,there is no crisis! On June 17,2009 he was honored at corrupt Acorn’s birthday celebration! This man wrote the bill to have National ID cards for EVERY individual to try and stop illegal workers! That is an invasion of our privacy! He voted for HEALTHCARE without reading it! He want to have healtcare like canada! He does NOT vote for what is good for US, he votes for Progressive things. He would not sign the plegde to read for healthcare! He has NEVER answered an email! He does NOT have town hall meetings! Please vote this man out! Read his voting record.

Wanted you to know the people of the United States does care about earmarks or pork. Pork should not have been in the stimulus bill, don’t believe a single representative or senitor knows all the items that have been placed in this so called stimulus bill. It shames me, a Democrat, to know my party put all this pork in the bill and it will place high taxes on the grandchildren to try and pay off the national debt which has greatly been increased by this pork bill. To hear more stimulus bills are coming just boils my blood since $80 billion was wasted in the TARP bill, how much more is going to be wasted in this stimulus bill? I’m deeply concerned the Democrats which are spending taxpayers money is out of control. Republican spending, too, is out of control. All of you are spending us into a Depression. If you don’t learn from the past what Roosevelt and Hoover did then you are apt to repeat it and it looks like you all have just done that.

purplelilac3084 09/12/2009 5:01am

I have called two times to find out why senator schumer hasn’t signed the pledge to read petition. It was faxed alot of times to every senator.
It states they will read the Health care bill. doesn’t have any democrats that signed it. He already has told us over and over he will sign the bill even though we protest it.
Does this sound like someone that is representing us?

moranj92 08/01/2012 12:10am

Why does anyone vote for you with your track record? Quit your attempts to pass more gun control when it is obvious that your state requires less laws and CCW permits issued to law abiding citizens.

purplelilac3084 09/21/2010 3:11am

Vote him OUT! Wake up NY state! I am so tired of people voting their party, and not voting for the person who will represent us!

purplelilac3084 08/05/2009 6:50am

I urge everyone to watch C-Span to see how senators vote.
It seems that Mr. Schumer votes only what is in interest to him, not representing us. I call him every time to ask him to vote no, but the public is not being represented.
We do care about PORK. We want you to read the bill! We do not want government healthcare. We want to be free of the government. that is our right. Please read the constitution. The government works for us, and that is why we elect them.
No more spending, no more big government, no more corruption.
We need JOBS. Please work on that. That means no Cap & Trade. It will kill what jobs there are.

Anonymous 09/23/2008 10:35am

Do not extend unemployment benefits. Most of the people getting those benefits are phonies and double dippers. Let them go out and get a real job like the rest of us. Phonies and cheats and liars.

purplelilac3084 09/21/2010 11:37am

I want to know WHY you voted YES to the defense bill today?
Are you really, really just going to keep ignoring the majority of americans who say NO?
The military said NOT to repeal don’t ask, don’t tell until they finish their study! We have a WAR going on!!
Why are you going to give ILLEGAL immigrants citizenship?
What the hell is wrong with you democrats?

purplelilac3084 08/26/2010 5:47am

This is a disgrace that the president and senate are on vacation!
the economy is falling apart due to the socialist bills they have passed!
after spending ALL that money, the jobs have never been created.
They want to end the Bush tax cuts, so small businesses will be taxed!
That is going to create even more unemployment!
I have been going crazy to find a job, I am even enrolled in 5 Temporary Agencies, but of course, they are hit just as bad as I am.
The health care bill will tax them, the bush tax cuts will end, the financial bill will hurt them, so where are we going to get jobs from?
The President has said he don’t care if he is a one term president, as long as he gets his agenda! Please fire these senators in November!

purplelilac3084 09/30/2010 3:44am

This is a disgrace that you left early to campaign! What the hell?
You left without passing the budget that ends friday!
You left without extending the Bush tax cuts! Why? Because you democrats are going to tax everyone!
We are NOT stupid! I am so sick of your progressive social attitude!
You pass bills that the majority of Americans say NO!
You didn’t even read the over 2000 page healthcare bill!
The bill that Nancy Pelosi said we have to pass it to KNOW WHAT’S IN IT!
You have never had a town hall to meet with us!
Now we are finding out how rates went up double! Senior citizens are being dropped from Medicare Advantage! You violated the CONSTITUTION mandating all americans buy healthcare!
Every SINGLE ammendment that the republicans put in you vote NO!
Did you give all that money back from general motors campaign contribution? The bailout money?
Vote NO to this senator!

Yea, just like Republicans did.

Soon you will be sorry that you thanked him for the healthcare bill. There is only 2 things that this bill does for reform. Pre-existing conditions doesn’t even start until 2014! Premiums will go UP, not DOWN. Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, the Post office, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are all BROKE! This shows you the goverment Cannot run anything without bankrupting it. They just spend, spend, spend. And soon this bill will tax, tax, tax, and fine you if you cannot afford insurance. It is taking our freedom away from CHOICE, which America is supposed to represent.

•Comments: To: President, Vice President, Senate, and House of Representatives.
The passing of this H.R.1388 Bill as we see and understand it, returns the World, and America to a bygone era, not that of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s President ice, but to 1933 Germany and what the Germany people where subjected to by their government, need there be more said.

I am firmly against this Bill, and feel totally betrayed with it’s being passed. On behalf of my family and I, and our well being as a free people, we want, insist that H.R.1388 be REPEALED.

Frighteningly Yours,

ms. bunny

PS: as a member of the Jewish faith, this represents the SS and Hitler youth to me, and I am EXREMLY OFFENDED and INSULTED by this bill!!!

There was no pork in the ARRA. If you ad read it you would know that. There was pork in the 2009 budget – complain about the correct issue.

As a democrat, I am deeply ashamed that you represent my state in congress. First you cause a bamk to fold and now you have failed to take any action in the financial crisis. I hope they have paid you off well because you will need the money when you get tossed out of office.

Anonymous 07/11/2008 3:09am

You are wreckless and maybe even just stupid. Your actions with regard to IndyMac Bank showed a lack of any ability to think ahead to what might happen. Do you fall off curbs while walking too? Look down once in a while Mr. Schumer.

purplelilac3084 09/09/2010 5:29am

well, now the president wants to spend more money! the money will create jobs for the UNIONS!!!! Not the people who really need a job! I am sick by this democrat social agenda…NO JOBS! I had a good paying job when President Bush was in office, so YES I would rather have him be President!
Did you see the health care bill is going to raise rates DOUBLE! One for the annual premium, and one for the health care bill that goes in affect at the end of this month! Remember Nancy Pelosi saying we have to pass the bill to find out what’s in it? These damn democrats voted for it without reading it!
Of course people don’t want to hire with this crazy administration! They are trying to take away our freedom with every bill they pass! They have NO IDEA how to make jobs in our country! They think oh, unemployment claims have dropped! But what about ME who has been a 99er without no money and looking for a job every single day without any luck!
Wake up America and vote them out!!!!

I see nowhere in this legislation that could possibly be construed to being similar to anything that was done in Nazi Germany. If anything, it improves on a long established volunteer corps that has worked well under three administrations. It seems funny that volunteering to help Americans help Americans is equated with Nazi Germany in your eyes.
