    in Bill Owens' vote, I'm not so quick to throw him under the bus yet-his vote got us the Affordable Healthcare Act and the 1st Democrat to represent this district in over 100 years. Makes me wonder if the recent legislation New York State just passed raising state min wage had something to do with it. Whatever his reason, he's going to hear from me!

    •  Agreed. Bill Owens is a good man. (3+ / 0-)

      He is now my congressman, thanks to redistricting and I've met and talked to him him several times. He has cast several votes that I disagreed with, but he is far and away better than his republican opponents would have been and probably the best we could hope for.

      Also bear in mind that one of my former Congressional reps in this district was now Senator Kirsten Gillibrand who had the endorsement of the NRA and was widely reviled on this site because she represented her district.
