Conservative Dems Break Rank on Health Care

Ad Feedback

The President's trillion dollar health care overhaul hit a snag in the House on Friday.

Conservative Democrats are demanding significant changes before they'll support the plan.

House Democratic leaders had planned to unveil their sweeping proposal Friday.

Now, they've put it off until next week.

The so-called "Blue Dog" Democrats are fiscal conservatives.

They want more protections for small businesses and a focus on health care in rural areas.

They also say the current plan doesn't do enough to contain costs.

And they're concerned that Democratic leaders are looking to create $600 billion in new taxes to pay for the plan.
