Monday Short Cuts

Schumer wants to “improve our health care system in the way our Founding Fathers intended us to improve it.” Then get government out of the way!

The Gipper: “I was 21 and looking for work in 1932, one of the worst years of the Great Depression. And I can remember one bleak night in the thirties when my father learned on Christmas Eve that he’d lost his job. To be young in my generation was to feel that your future had been mortgaged out from under you, and that’s a tragic mistake we must never allow our leaders to make again.”

For the record: “I don’t know if any Republican could have won in 2008. But John McCain surrendered any chance he had when he decided it would be too divisive to make an issue out of Barack Obama’s attendance at a church led by an America-hating, bigoted pastor. That decision guaranteed Obama’s election and the senator has now guaranteed that Obama’s legacy will survive.” —Gary Bauer

Non sequitur: “Well I think that [Russia and Comey] had an influence [on Hillary Clinton’s loss]. There is absolutely no question about that. But when you have a campaign, you’re responsible for your campaign. I don’t even want to go into that.” —Nancy Pelosi

“Look, taking on the insurance companies and the drug companies, taking on Wall Street, taking on a lot of very powerful forces that make millions of dollars a year from the current health care system is not going to be easy.” —Bernie Sanders’ explanation for why blue states have been unable to implement single-payer health care

Non Compos Mentis: “Let’s work together to improve our health care system in the way our Founding Fathers intended us to improve it.” —Chuck Schumer

The BIG Lie: “Obamacare is not hurting people. In fact, what would have really hurt people was if we would have passed Trumpcare.” —Sen. Chris Van Hollen

Late-night humor: “The publisher of Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir announced … that the title of her book will be the statement ‘What Happened.’ Well, that’s the censored version.” —Seth Meyers
