Will Boyd, Kosmas take one for the team on health care?

March

As U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi begins to round up votes for a second try at passing health care, the two Florida Democrats who voted against the plan -- Allen Boyd and Suzanne Kosmas -- will feel pressure.

But don't bet on either to come around.

Kosmas, a freshman from New Smyrna Beach, is facing a mounting re-election challenge from Republicans who want to reclaim the seat Another no vote could keep her safe. Boyd also faces a re-election fight but with seven terms already, he may be less susceptible. Still, he is fiscally conservative, and the cost of the health care plan has been a concern.
