Chuck Schumer took care of Wall Street, so Wall Street's gonna take care of Chuck Schumer.

It's called the "invisible primary." Nobody wins unless they can afford to buy millions of dollars of commercials from media companies, so you either have to be independently wealthy or suck up to the right people.

while i agree with you frank,when the scotus equates money with free speech and makes new law by overturning two laws,one in place for a century,what's a politician to do.the scotus decision basically made all races a mad dash to suck up as much money and do and promise whatever it takes to get it.they have sown the seeds of the ruin of our democracy.

As if Washington hasn't already been running that way for at least 50 years. Citizens United merely made it obvious.

You've been asleep at the civic wheel and dreaming. Wake up. It's far later than you think.

Time to hack Washington back radically and put it back in its cage. Tell the permanent professional political class that has usurped the throne it's over, and they have to go get real jobs with the rest of us now.

It's far worse.

Chuck is generally acknowledged to control the biggest campaign war chest in Washington. He funds others' campaigns, and probably has about 25 or more other members of Congress in his pocket, who owe their seats to him, and now vote the way Chuck instructs them to.

This is the corrupt and dysfunctional Washington - Chuck has been working hard to turn it into the functional equivalent of Albany, with some success.

Throw the bums out.

i just watched the jp morgan hearings and the republican senators were acting like lickspittles to him,then i read how much jp morgan gave to their re-election campaigns,so it is not a one party issue.if one side plays dirty,you had better be willing to play dirtier or you will lose.that's the way its always been and always will be in amer. politics.it's like the speech sean connerys' irish cop in eliot ness gives.they pull a knife,you pull a gun,they put one of yours in the hospital,you put one of theirs in the morgue.politicians play dirty,and lie because the amer.people allow it.

Thank God that Sen Gillibrand is independent and always votes her own mind. Excuse me, why are you laughing?

Your past 4 years of denial and your reaching back to 12 years render your worship of Obama interesting. Romney is not Bush, and Obama is not doing a damn thing to improve this nation. You remain a fool. Enjoy... at least until November. Bwhahahahahahahahahaha...

You must have missed the angry rants then. Obviously, that special ed. speed reading course didn't help you. Pray to Obama for hopey-changey in comprehension.

I hire lowlife like you to do that for me. Now keep praying to Obama for the elusive hopey-changey; if you want it to happen sooner...try getting a job, fool.

keep being a tool for the rich.support their right to pay a lower tax rate then their help does.that's why they keep our educational system operating at such low standards.without people like you,who are not smart enough to know there being used,things might actually improve.so keep on doing what you can to make sure the one percenters get even more.fool.
