Democrats looking beyond healthcare summit to final talks within party

Washington Post, February 25, 2010

Congressional Democrats are already looking beyond the White House healthcare summit, focusing instead on a final round of intraparty negotiations that are likely to determine the fate of healthcare reform, the Washington Post reports. Although President Obama is billing the summit as an opportunity for Republicans to air their ideas for reform, Democrats do not expect it to reveal much common ground and are showing little willingness to abandon the basic outline of legislation that the House and Senate have approved, the Post reports.
