Southern Tier Republican Congressman Tom Reed recently opposed special treatment members of Congress receive under the Affordable Care Act.  However, Reed has accepted the federal contribution to his health coverage that he had previously wanted eliminated.  Democrat Martha Robertson is planning to run against Reed in next year's election. She calls Reeds reversal, “stunning.”

Martha Robertson criticizes Congressman Reed for taking advantage of a law that he opposed but could not get repealed. But, Robertson has her own skeletons in the closet. In 2012, she was not elected to the Chair's position of the Tompkins County Legislature until Jan. 17, yet she took pay as chairperson from Jan. 1 to 17, when she had not yet even been elected to the post. People do not get paid as office holders before they get elected to the office. She also alleged that Reed "operatives" had hacked her website. She was challenged to substantiate her statement and has been unable to produce one ounce of evidence that anyone acting for Reed hacked her website or even that it was actually hacked. Robertson's assertion about Reed and "special treatment" amounts to little more than a claim that he availed himself of a legal benefit stemming from a law he didn't like. How many of us have turned down a federal benefit we are entitled to because we didn't like the law under which we got it?
