    I'm willing to lose one seat if that is the cost of being the only party with an actual solution to our debt crises.

    however, that wasn't even the trade that was made. the republican wasn't beaten by the Ryan Plan, but rather by a particularly dirty political tactic. So congratulations, guys; way to go

    I thought the Tea Party wasn't about partisanship. I was told, by people on here, that anyone who wants a government who listens to the people can be a part of the Tea Party regardless of party identity.

    Guess you don't subscribe to that?

    Also, Davis had more name recognition than either of the major party candidates - thus the voters of the district knew who he was - i.e. a former Democrat. Thus, he should actually pull more from Hochul than he did Corwin were it based solely on party identity.

    Now, I think Corwin really screwed up when her chief of staff did the fake assault video on Davis. It was at that point that Hochul really began to pull ahead. Bad move.

    The medicare thing didn't help, but it was just one part of this reliably Republican district turning blue.

    I can't answer for whoever it was that told you that the Tea Party was about nothing more than government "listening" to the people, but this guy wasn't it. He put himself on the ballot specifically just to put a "Tea Party" candidate there, and then generally didn't run. This guy was willing to self-finance a run as a Democrat - that's a true believer, not a Tea Party Small Government Republicans Are Spending Too Much type.

    I agree the Medicare thing probably didn't help; but it was Davis that killed the Republican shot at this thing, not Ryan.

    no - that would be an oxymoron - two things contradicting each other - and in that case - not even in the real world.

    Excuses, excuses.
    Obviously, you do not know what Ryans plan would mean to seniors with preexisting conditions, such as cancer. Who is going sell health insurance to them?
