New Congressman From NY-23 Breaks 4 Promises Within One Hour Of Taking Office

When Nancy Pelosi said "we won", she was right.

Owens indicated in a press release that he was now in favor of the bill in direct contrast to his earlier position during his campaign.

During his campaign for Congress, Mr. Owens assured voters that he felt the public option had no place in the health care reform bill. Contrary to that position, Mr. Owens now indicates that he intends to vote in favor of the bill even though it now contains a public option.

Owens also promised to vote against cutting Medicare benefits, taxing health care benefits, and increased taxes on the middle class. All of those are "features of the House bill.

Here's the Owens statement of support for the bill.

Heck of job Republican County Chairs, heck of a job.

Thanks to Heather Radish in the comments.
