    The NYT reported yesterday on a novel line of attack some Democratic Congressional candidates are using.

    Since Obamacare requires members of Congress to choose from the same health insurance plans every other American has access to, candidates who support repeal are effectively supporting giving Congress back its special health benefits reserved only for federal employees. I wouldn't have thought of using that but it'll be interesting to see how it plays.
