Senator Charles Schumer is taking a huge hit in the media - by those opposed to his opposition to Obama's deal.

Actually, the president has it in for anyone opposed to his deal.

Tell her that we understand the intense partisan political pressure being exerted on her from the White House BUT THIS PERILOUS TIME IN OUR HISTORY IS NOT THE TIME FOR POLITICS AS USUAL!  Her constituents deserve better than that! It's not too late to change her mind!
