Well, it seems the Dems will definitely be negotiating behind closed doors on the health care bill. Steven Ertelt at LifeNews.com has this to say:

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) Congressional Democrats and President Barack Obama have made it official: they will bypass a public, formal conference committee and negotiate behind closed doors on a final version of the pro-abortion health care bill.

The decision will have the the pro-abortion Senate version of the health care bill as the basis for a merged legislation that may very well include abortion funding.

Because the Senate approved the bill on a tenuous one-vote margin, there is less room for error there and little desire to subject the pro-abortion bill to additional 60-vote threshold votes.

Instead, Democrats have now formally adopted the “ping-pong” strategy of sending the Senate bill to the House to be tweaked and approved and back again.

Obama, pro-abortion Vice President Joe Biden and top Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid reached the agreement on strategy at a White House meeting Tuesday night.
