    [size=+3]House healthcare talks break down in anger[/size]

    House healthcare negotiations dissolved in acrimony on Friday, with Blue Dog Democrats saying they were “lied” to by their Democratic leaders.

    In advance of a subsequent press conference called by House leadership, Blue Dog liaison Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Calif.) said the healthcare bill should be staying in committee.

    "I expect the committee process to proceed," Cardoza said.

    The seven Blue Dogs on the Energy and Commerce Committee stormed out of a Friday meeting with their committee chairman, Henry Waxman (D-Calif.), saying Waxman had been negotiating in bad faith over a number of provisions Blue Dogs demanded be changed in the stalled healthcare bill.

    Don't worry, they patched things up and are talking again:

    Blue Dog Health Care Back On -- For Now

    Health care reform negotiations in the House, which had collapsed in an acrimonious heap earlier Friday, are now back on.

    Two Democrats who had been at odds -- Energy and Commerce Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and leading Blue Dog Mike Ross (D-Ark.) -- emerged from a closed-door meeting late in the afternoon and told reporters that talks were back on track and that the committee would resume its business Monday or Tuesday.

    "We've had a very good meeting of the Democrats on our committee. We've decided that it's important for us to continue our conversations and to try to bridge the differences we have had," said Waxman. Ross concurred.

    "Our colleagues have pulled us back and said, 'Let's see if we can take a deep breath,'" Waxman offered.

    "... for now...". Famous last words.

    The fact is that the radical left wing of the Democrat party has gone too far, and if Obama isn't careful he's going to alienate so many Democrats, Independents, and liberal Repubs, he's going to pull a Jimmy Carter. One and done.

    Stay tuned.
