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.
