The Iowa Republican: Leonard Boswell lies to his constituents at lone town hall meeting

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

In his only scheduled town hall meeting, Congressman Leonard Boswell
told a crowd of 100 people that he might not vote for the health care
reform bill. Boswell, who is considered to be the most vulnerable
congressional incumbent in Iowa, told the audience, "I can't answer
that because we don't have a bill." However Boswell's congressional
website tells a different story. The front page of Boswell's website
states, "As a Member of Congress, representing the Third Congressional
District of Iowa, I am committed to working with my colleagues in
Congress and with President Obama to create real reforms that will
help Iowans and all Americans receive health insurance and access to
their family doctors. Since H.R. 3200, the America's Affordable Health
Choices Act of 2009, was introduced on July 14th, I have been in
various meetings analyzing this bill with the needs of Iowans in mind,
voicing my support and criticism for the many provisions in this
monumental bill."
