Rep. Mike Ross, a Blue Dog Democrat and obstructionist hailing from the 4th District of Arkansas, is leading a coalition of Blue Dogs to attempt to derail the House health care bill by keeping it from leaving the House Energy & Commerce Committee. So far, committee chairman Rep. Henry Waxman has had to cancel mark-up of the health care bill for three days running because of Rep. Ross’s obstructionism. According to Rep. Ross, he doesn’t want to kill the health care bill, he’s just concerned about costs.
