Galen Falsely Claims Owens Flip-Flopped on Health Reform After Election

Rich Galen writes in his Nov. 9 column:

Among those voting for the health care bill was the new Congressman from NY-23, Bill Owens, who had said during the campaign that he was opposed to the public option.
Here's an abridged version of the conversation which went on between majority leader Steny Hoyer and Owens as he was about to be sworn in:
Welcome to Washington, Bill. Here are your two futures: Vote for the Speaker's legislation and we'll do everything we can to get you committee assignments which will help you in your district.
Vote against it and your committee assignment will be the Committee on the District of Columbia with a seat on the Sewage & Sanitation subcommittee.
See how this works?

In fact, as we noted, Owens expressed his support for health care reform before the election.
