Holy smokes! I agree with Chuck. Now the question is: what other than obstructing Trump is in their platform?

Democrats need to have a message in this year’s elections beyond antipathy to President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer said Monday, promising his party will run on an economic agenda of government support for average workers.

“We cannot just run against Donald Trump,” the New York Democrat said at the McConnell Center at the University of Louisville.

He said Democrats must tap into discontent that’s still simmering in the country, particularly over fears of falling behind. He said the party has stumbled in that regard.

“We have always been the party of economic advancement. We may have lost some sight of that,” he said.

Mr. Schumer said they took initial steps in last week’s massive spending deal, directing billions of dollars to government assistance for those with student loans, for extending broadband access to rural areas, and for parents who use child care.

The Democratic leader also said he doesn’t support term limits — “I’m better at this job today than I was five years ago.”
