ABSTRACT
The article discusses the political views of moderate U.S. Democrats regarding health-care reform under the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama. It speaks of the Blue Dog Coalition of Democrats who represent non-liberal districts. It notes that Representative Dennis Moore, Democrat of Kansas, wants health reform to be considered on a slower pace in deference to his district's small-business owners who would be taxed to pay for government-run health care coverage.
