Chuck Schumer Calls for Chaos

By The New York Post Editorial Board

It’s right out of Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”: The ghost of Chuck Schumer past issuing a dire warning to today’s Senate minority leader.

Back in 2013, recall, a GOP effort to defund ObamaCare in a federal spending bill led to a 16-day shutdown of the federal government. Democrats were irate (as they always are when Republicans advance their policies), and none more so than Schumer, who explained how his party was above the fray.

“You know,” he said on ABC’s “This Week,” “we could do the same thing on immigration reform. We believe strongly in immigration reform. We could say, ‘We’re shutting down the government, we’re not gonna raise the debt ceiling, until you pass immigration reform.’ ”

But, he added ominously, “it would be government chaos.”

We don't need reform. We need immigration law enforcement.enforce existing law has carried us 240 years.

Tell Schumer to look back and see how the public treated Republicans when they stood their ground and shut down the government. It will be the same for the Dems. When you cut the people off from their governments services, they get angry, no matter who causes it.

Shut it down! The only people that care if the government gets shut down are the big city lefties and the MSM.
