At Least 13 Blue Dogs Oppose Health Care Bill, 4 Support
by

David Hogberg and Sean Higgins of Investor’s Business Daily report that at least 13 Blue Dog Democrats oppose the House health care bill in its current form and 4 support it, based on news reports and their own survey of members. Others were either undecided or non-responsive. With Alabama Rep. Arthur Davis, who is not a member of the Blue Dogs, also having said he opposes the legislation, Democrats need at least 15 of 52 Blue Dogs to support the bill to secure passage if Republicans remain unified in opposition.

Meanwhile, at a town hall meeting, Jack Murtha — not a Blue Dog member — made comments suggesting that at the minimum, he had reservations about the current bill and expected the timeline to slip further.
