Why The NY GOP Is Doomed

With the state Senate the only institution they still control, New York Republicans are gearing up to hold the majority against a furious Democratic assault.

So, they've opened up their own Website to highlight the abuses of Democrats. Not a bad idea.

How do they highlight those abuses? Do they promote their own alternative to the Democrats' agenda? Let's see:

The Republicans’ new Web site includes a mock version of the “Jeopardy” TV quiz show.

A visitor to the site can click on “Health Care” for $100, for example, and read: “Wanted to Cut $18.6M from hospitals and nursing homes in her district.” The answer — or the question, in “Jeopardy” style — is “Who is Democratic State Senator Andrea Stewart-Cousins?”

The reference is to the senator’s support for the governor’s proposed health care budget cuts; the governor presented them as a way to help pay for broader health care coverage, but Senate Republicans and some advocacy groups have criticized them as cuts and were swift in making political hay out of them.
Yep, the New York state GOP is bashing a Democrat for supporting cuts in health-care expenditures in public hospitals!

Once again: The GOP is attacking the Democratic state senator FROM THE LEFT for supporting Spitzer's attempt to control health-care!


Doomed, I tell you, doomed.
