Progressive Democrats such as U.S. Rep. Marcy Kaptur, D-Toledo, are the party's strongest supporters for the kinds of changes in the health care system backed by President Barack Obama.

But Kaptur and other liberal Democrats are letting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi know their votes can't be taken for granted. They say the final bill must have a strong public option to cover Americans who can't otherwise obtain health insurance.
