As a New Yorker, I’d like to thank Senator Chuck Schumer for all the good, persistent work he did in getting the votes for the 9/11 First Responders health care bill, which just passed the Senate. But I’d be a lot happier with him if he weren’t such a toady for the flagrant financial speculators–who are his major campaign contributors–on issues like “carried credit” and the need for new disincentives for speculation (and incentives for investment). Here’s looking at you, Chuck–more carefully in the news year.
