House Democrats confer on healthcare reform

Washington Post, January 8, 2010

House Democrats held a caucus-wide conference call to strategize about healthcare reform before lawmakers return to Washington next week, the Washington Post reports. More than 100 members participated, Democratic aides said, to discuss the differences between the House's health bill and the one passed by the Senate. With Senate Democrats barely able to muster the 60 votes necessary to pass their own bill and President Obama leaning toward the Senate's position on some key issues, House Democrats are increasingly concerned that they could be marginalized at the bargaining table, reports the Post.
