Jeff Dobbs gleefully notes the margin for repeal comfortably exceeds the margin by which it passed:
March 21, 2010:
House passes health care bill on 219-212 vote
January 7, 2011:
House Votes to Repeal â€œJob-Killingâ€ Health Care Law 236-181
In 2010, the Democrats passed ObamaCare by a 7 vote margin. In 2011, the Republicans passed the bill to repeal ObamaCare with a 55 vote margin.
Three out of four democrats voting for repeal were members of the 26 member Blue Dog Coalition: Dan Boren (2-OK), Mike McIntyre (7-NC), and Mike Ross (4-AR). Larry Kissel (8-NC), who also voted for repeal, is not a member.
