Sen. Charles Schumer (middle) said that voters are less concerned with spending and deficit issues than they have been during the past year and are now focused on jobs.
"That statement is almost as out-of-touch with political reality as the Democrats' decision to put most of their vulnerable 2012 Senators on record last night supporting a massive tax increase on job creators at a time when we're facing 9 percent unemployment," said Brian Walsh, a spokesman for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. "Republicans can only hope that the Democrat rank and file actually buys into this over-the-top rhetoric and tone-deaf legislative strategy by their fearless liberal leaders like Sen. Schumer."
