Liberals Gag Over Health Deal

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi spent half of Wednesday finalizing a deal with the Blue Dogs -- and the other half quelling a brewing rebellion among progressives who think conservatives have hijacked health care reform.

Liberals, Hispanics and African-American members -- Pelosi's most loyal base of support -- are feeling betrayed after House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) reached an agreement with four of seven Blue Dogs on his committee who had been bottling up the bill over concerns about cost.
