Dingle to retain control of health care in the House
Incoming House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Henry Waxman (D-Calif.) and the old bull he ousted from the post, Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.) have reached an unusual power-sharing arrangement.
Waxman will cede to Dingell the lead role in drafting health reform legislation, a major priority for congressional Democrats and the incoming Obama administration, the two lawmakers announced late Thursday afternoon.
Neither Waxman nor Dingell are cosponsors of HR 676, so I have no idea what significance, if any, this has for single payer. Tomorrow is national call your Representatives district office, so don't forget.
