Deeply divided House Democrats return to work
House Democrats are returning to work still unsettled over pending healthcare legislation—but they are in almost the exact position they were in when they left the Capitol in late July. In the lead-up to President Obama's critical address to a joint session of Congress, interviews with a cross section of about 15 House Democrats and half a dozen aides show that there is still overwhelming support for some overhaul of the healthcare system. But the caucus remains divided over the details of the measure and now faces a public that is more skeptical than when House committees began drafting the plan two months ago.
