Democrats scored an upset in one of New York’s most conservative Congressional districts on Tuesday, dealing a blow to the national Republican Party in a race that largely turned on the party’s plan to overhaul Medicare.
The results set off elation among Democrats and soul-searching among Republicans, who questioned whether they should rethink their party’s commitment to the Medicare plan, which appears to have become a liability heading into the 2012 elections.
The media narrative has been playing over and over, like a broken record with no reference to any argument to validate the claim.
I know that NY-26 had little to do with medicare, because that's what Kathy Hochul told me. When fund raising in NYC, she advertised Jack Davis as a spoiler.
Kathy is a progressive, pro-choice candidate. She is running in a 3-way race against a self-funding Tea Party candidate who will likely split votes with her Republican opponent.
No mention of mediscare. Democrats were banking on Jack Davis spoiling the race. I know this because Kathy Hochul told me.
