Obama to meet with House New Democratic Coalition at the White House on Tuesday

| No Comments

WASHINGTON--President Obama invited 68 members of the House New Democrat Coalition to meet with him Tuesday afternoon at the White House. The agenda, according to the office of Vice Chairman Rep. Melissa Bean (D-Ill.), will cover financial regulatory reform, trade, health care innovation and the presidential budget priorities.

The NDC is a caucus of moderate Democrats, created in 1997. Obama earlier met with the Blue Dog Democrats--a slightly more conservative group of moderates-- when he was wooing their vote for his stimulus package.
