House Democratic leaders huddled late Tuesday afternoon with four top White House officials on health care reform.

The meeting — which includes Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, Office of Management and Budget Director Peter Orszag, White House Legislative Affairs Director Phil Schiliro and health policy czar Nancy-Ann DeParle — comes hours after White House senior adviser David Axelrod told House Democrats that President Barack Obama’s address to a joint session of Congress last week boosted public support for the reform drive.
