Schumer vs. Schumer On Entitlement Reform

Posted by Brian Patrick on

FYI –

This morning, Chuck Schumer claimed that Democrats “didn’t take [entitlement reform] off the table” yet just last month Senator Schumer said the exact opposite.


Today:

  • Willie Geist: We understand that Senator Reid’s plan that you just referenced does include some reforms to entitlement programs. Do you know what those specifically are, are they meaningful?
  • Senator Schumer: [Leader] Pelosi said this last night so I am not spilling the beans. It will not do entitlement reform. Look, the President put [entitlement reform] on the table, Democrats didn’t take it off the table. (Morning Joe, 7/25/11)


Last Month:

  • Keith Olbermann: ... Senator Baucus and even the President yesterday seemed to indicate that Medicare cuts are still on the table. Are they still on the table?
  • Senator Schumer: I don’t believe they are. The cuts to Medicare benefits are not on the table. (Countdown, 6/30/11)
