Tupper Lake - Doheny makes Congressional bid official

Across the country, Republicans are blasting incumbent Democrats who voted in favor of the recent health care overhaul. They are promising to repeal the law.

Owens voted in favor of the legislation, and has begun criss-crossing the district touting the merits of health care reform.

Earlier this week, former Colorado Congressman and state Republican Party Chairman Bob Beauprez told WNBZ the chances of the GOP grabbing a veto-proof two-thirds majority is - quote - "slim to none."

But Doheny said that like the GOP led welfare overhaul of the mid-1990s, the key to changing the health care overhaul during a Democratic president's administration is resolve.

"Before welfare reform was passed, President Clinton vetoed it twice," he said. "You have to keep on working, so if it doesn't happen immediately you have to keep on working and make Pelosi and her terrible crowd defend it."

Democrats currently hold a 253 to 177 majority in the House.
