In it, but not of it. TPM DC
The crowd, pulled together to try and influence conservative Blue Dog Democrats before Saturday's vote on the House health care bill, said the Blue Dogs were critical.
Cantor told them "we will try to pick up" as many Democrats as they can to defeat the bill.
Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) told them he was "standing with freedom-loving Americans" against the bill.
Rep. John Shadegg (R-AZ) called the crowd "freedom fighters" who will stop the bill.
