Senator Schumer Commits Extortion on Senate Floor – Against his own constituents!!

Charles Schumer blocked a bill to extend the federal unemployment $600 benefit for New York and all American families.

He harmed his own New York constituents and ALL American families because he said he will block all legislation unless the ENTIRE House HEROs Act is approved.

He blocked the one-week extension of the $600 federal unemployment benefit.

3 days from now, American families will not have that $600 to pay for food, housing, electricity.

Schumer will still get his huge salary from the U.S. Government!!

Schumer’s single-handed action physically harms American families.

Schumer stated that unless an entire bill that he supports is passed (without compromises and legislative due process), he will block ALL legislation.

He committed criminal extortion using American families health and survival as his weapon.

American families are NOT chips in a poker game!!

Schumer has crossed the line into criminal extortion ON THE SENATE FLOOR!!!

My blog, "Beyond Leadership" is a creative place to share my personal feelings and thoughts while working in leadership roles for a variety of Alaska Native organizations, both for and not-for profit entities.

An incredible leader and mentor of mine once asked while we were in Washington, DC, "What happened to you between the ages of 7-10 that motivated you to serve in a native leadership capacity". I was struck by that poignant thought and as such, include actual entries from my mother and my diaries beginning in the early 1970's.

I enjoy sharing these excerpts because it captures the parallels she and I were experiencing throughout life, from two separate worldviews. Hers as a young mother of four and mine as her eldest child.
I have never came across a book on leadership that lays bare a leaders personal feelings, thoughts, hopes, fears and dreams they were experiencing.

So for me, my goal is two-fold:

1. Share the incredible life my parents created for my siblings and I growing up in remote Alaska; and,

2) Sharing my humanity, through my personal diaries and journals, while serving as the youngest-ever President/CEO for the Alaska Native Health Board.

There are passages that will include significant policy issues I was working on throughout my career and travels. There are many more passages that do not.

I cannot speak for my mom's passages, because I am reading them as I share them here, with you; with her permission of course.
