Two former candidates from last year’s city elections, plus a Democratic operative, got into a back and forth exchange on my Facebook page when I asked readers who were the winners and losers from the health care vote last night.
Alex Zablocki, a Republican who ran for public advocate, said, “we already have health insurance programs that cover the uninsured” and that “this bill hurts New Yorkers” and “we’ll have to pay more.”
Zablocki’s response: “as a resident of NY, I shouldn’t have to pay for the failures of poor leaders in other states. This is a State issue.”
