WASHINGTON -- Republicans in the House didn't need help from Democrats to repeal the health care reform law but they got a little anyway.

Three Democrats voted against their party in the mostly symbolic vote:

-- Dan Boren of Oklahoma

-- Mike McIntyre of North Carolina

-- Mike Ross of Arkansas


All three are members of the Blue Dog coalition, a group of moderate Democrats from conservative districts.

They were among 39 Democrats who voted against their party nearly a year ago when it first passed the historic health care overhaul. Of the 30 Democrats who voted no and ran for re-election, there were only 13 who were re-elected.

Only one member missed the repeal vote. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is recovering from an assassination attempt in a Tucson hospital and is expected to move to a rehab center in Texas Friday.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
