WHICH RAISES THE OBVIOUS QUESTION...:

Pelosi backs away from deal with Blue Dogs (Mike Soraghan, 09/22/09, The Hill)

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.


...do the Blue Dogs have a safety word or will they stay bound and choke-balled?
