    GOUVERNEUR, NY - Congressman-elect Bill Owens was sworn in at noon today.

    Owens indicated in a press release released shortly afterwards that he was now in favor of the the "Affordable Healthcare for America Act" bill in direct contrast to his earlier position during the election campaign.

    According to Politico.com, 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.

    My Grandfather was a lobbyist and he always said, there's one incontrovertible rule in this world, and that's all politicians are crooks! He also said, every politician has to compromise his principles in order to get elected to office. Smart man....experienced man.
