Kansas City, MO – U.S. House speaker Nancy Pelosi has vowed to reach an agreement on a health care bill soon. But that may depend on the Blue Dog Coalition, a group of conservative Democrats seen as swing votes on health care legislation.
Dennis Moore, who represents most of the Kansas side of the metropolitan area, is a long time member of the Blue Dog group. KCUR's Elana Gordon spoke recently with Moore, who says he'd like to see health care legislation passed, but not in a hurry, and not if it's going to place what he considers to be an undue burden on tax payers.
