Democrats use robocall to back Boyd on health care



Our colleague Lucy Morgan reports that she just got a robo call praising Democratic Congressman Allen Boyd for "standing up to insurance companies" and voting for the health care bill.

"You sent your representative to Washington to represent you and that's exactly what he is doing," a woman says on call, which was paid for by the Democratic National Committee.

Boyd, of Monticello, voted against the original House plan in November but said Friday he will vote yes, citing lower costs.
