The din continues in the wake of last month’s historic health care reform vote — which featured almost unanimous support from the city’s congressional delegation. The lone “No” vote on President Obama’s signature issue came from a fellow Democrat — Rep. Mike McMahon from Bay Ridge. McMahon believes that the reform measure didn’t go far enough, but he was one of only 34 Democrats nationwide to vote against the bill. So we offered up our op-ed space this week to allow McMahon, a freshman, to explain his vote, while also allowing a fellow Brooklyn lawmaker, Rep. Anthony Weiner, to counter with his explanation of his “yes” vote.
