    just represent Manhattan.

    Gillibrand is not at all like that.

    Besides her problems with the food stamps cut, she also mentions some good things in the bill that she worked for -- crop insurance reform, a better dairy program, rural broadband, and a healthy food initiative.

    Gillibrand is doing a great job representing all of New York, not just one high-profile island.

    A public option for health insurance is a national priority.

      if you listen on she addresses the bill's problem for dairy farmers.

      Which of course I could not care less about because I live in Brooklyn. (Kidding, kind of ....)
