Since Republicans want this election to hinge on the Affordable Health Care Act (ObamaCare), today's House vote on repeal tees up the ball and forced everybody on the record again.
NNY Congressman Bill Owens voted against repeal, saying the current plan may need change but provides the blueprint for a better system.
On cue, opponent Matt Doheny said ObamaCare is hiking premiums, costing jobs and forcing working families to lose insurance.
If you are weary of the verbal volleys, better buck up because it will be non stop to November.
The issue is polling at 50-50, so its not clear how many minds will be changed. Like most elections, this is about getting your peeps out. To that end, telephone voter ID surveys will allow the candidates to identify those pro or con on this issue, and they can then work on turnout.
