After meeting to discuss an unspecified health care compromise offered by Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), the Blue Dogs have agreed that…they need to have more meetings.
“The bottom line of the Blue Dogs has not been met yet,” said Rep. Earl Pomeroy inauspiciously (D-ND) according to The Hill.
But the fate of health care reform in the House is now back in the hands of the seven Blue Dogs on the Energy and Commerce Committee who’ve been holding things up all along–and Pomeroy isn’t one of them. Waxman wants to continue marking up his health care reform bill tomorrow–but these seven conservative Democrats will have to decide one way or another whether they’re in or out before that can happen.
