There was nothing genuine about Chuck Schumer's mea culpa on Obamacare yesterday. Then again there is nothing genuine about Chuck Schumer except that he genuinely wants to become the next Senate Majority Leader.
During a speech yesterday to the National Press Club, Schumer said that reforming health care was "a focus on the wrong problem." Former Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau responded on Twitter, "Funny, I don't remember Chuck Schumer giving that advice when he was privately and publicly championing the Affordable Care Act in 2010." I can understand Favreau's anger, but does he honestly expect Schumer to stay with a sinking ship?
