Liberal Democrats threaten to reject House healthcare compromise

Los Angeles Times, July 31, 2009

Liberal lawmakers from solidly Democratic districts are threatening a revolt that could doom President Obama's bid to sign a major healthcare bill this year. In the House, liberals are furious at their leaders for striking a deal with conservative Democrats that would weaken the proposal to create a government insurance program. On July 30, 57 of these liberals sent a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi warning that they would vote against any bill that contained the terms of the deal.
