Blue Dog Leonard Boswell is waiting to "see the final product" before he’ll commit on a public plan.  He says he’s "not against it," and "it may be necessary."

A majority of Iowans want a public plan, as do 67% of Iowa Democrats (of which Boswell is ostensibly one).  He recently signed on to a letter to Nancy Pelosi demanding a Medicare reimbursement fix in any health care bill, so it’s not like he has trouble speaking up.

Maybe he’ll find his voice if you call him:  DC (202) 225-3806, Iowa (515) 282-1909
