Tuesday Short Cuts

“Make no mistake about it, we are a pro-choice party,” says Chuck Schumer

Insight: “As the national income grows, the federal government will ultimately end up with more revenues. Prosperity is the real way to balance our budget. By lowering tax rates, by increasing jobs and income, we can expand tax revenues and finally bring our budget into balance.” —John F. Kennedy (1917-1963)

Praise from the Left: “When Obama had press conferences, he had a single piece of white paper and he had six or seven organizations that he had pre-selected to call upon and a lot of them were pretty favorable to him too, you know, generically. And I think Trump’s free-ranging press conferences … are a lot more Democratic than the way that Obama conducted them.” —New York Times’ Glenn Thrush

Hyperbole: “During [a recent town hall in Baltimore] a young lady got up and she said, ‘I’m 28 years old.’ She said, ‘The Affordable Care Act saved my life. But I get up every morning [wondering] whether I’m going to be able to get the medication to address my stage four colon cancer.’ So, in four years that lady could be dead. The four years that Trump would be in office.” —Rep. Elijah Cummings

Non Compos Mentis: “Look, we’re a big tent party as Nancy Pelosi said, but we are, let’s make no mistake about it, we are a pro-choice party. We’re a strongly pro-choice party. We think that’s where the American people are, and in fact, if anything, are moving even more in that direction.” —Chuck Schumer

Falling on deaf ears: “It’s important for those who support, as I do, immigration reform and pathways to citizenship for folks who are here not to assume that everybody who has trouble with the current immigration system is automatically racist. That’s an example of us being able to listen.” —Barack Obama

Late-night humor: “Chelsea Clinton recently said that when her mom traveled, she would leave a note for her every day that she was gone. Though every day the note just read, ‘Keep an eye on your father.’” —Jimmy Fallon
