Pelosi backs away from deal with Blue Dogs
By Mike Soraghan - 09/22/09 05:03 PM ET

Speaker Pelosi is backing away from a deal she cut with centrists to advance health reform, said a source familiar with talks.

Pelosi’s decision to move away from the agreement that was made with a group of Blue Dogs to get the bill out of committee would steer the healthcare legislation back to the left as she prepares for a floor vote.

Pelosi is planning to include a government-run public option in the House version of the healthcare bill. She wants to model it on Medicare, with providers getting reimbursed on a scale pegged to Medicare rates.


The Majority Leader:

Majority Leader Hoyer to reach out to GOP's Cantor on healthcare
By Mike Soraghan - 09/22/09 01:25 PM ET

House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer said Tuesday he would reach out to House Minority Whip Eric Cantor and other Republicans to seek common ground on healthcare.

"I'm going to be reaching out to a number of Republicans over the next day or so," said Hoyer (D-Md.), specifically citing Rep. Charles Boustany Jr. (R-La.) in addition to Cantor (R-Va.). "We are certainly more than willing to pursue any suggestion they may have."

5. Hoyer needs to go--he's too willing to drop to his knees
and suck off the nearest Republican for the sake of "bipartisanship".
