Bleeding Heartland: Boswell still supports a public option for health care

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Congressman Leonard Boswell still supports a health care reform bill
containing a public option that would go into effect immediately,
Boswell's spokesman Mark Daley confirmed today via e-mail. ... Whether
to include a "public option" that would compete directly with private
health insurers has become the main fault line as Congress prepares to
mark up health care reform proposals this summer. Stand with Dr. Dean
and Health Care for America Now are good resources on the need for a
public option. Republican opponents of serious reform are mostly
trying to keep the public option out of the health care bill, dangling
the carrot of substantial bipartisan support.
