How They Voted on Health Care Reform

March 22, 2010 - by Donny Shaw

As I reported last night, the House of Representative passed the final vote needed to send health care reform to President Obama to be signed into law. The bill was approved with a handful of votes to spare, even though no Republicans ended up voting in favor. Here’s a more detailed look at how lawmakers of the House voted.

(If you don’t know who your Representative in Congress is, go to the OpenCongress homepage, scroll down below the blog portal, and enter your zip to find out.)

The final vote was 219-212.

Every single Republican in the House voted “no.”

87% of the Democrats (219) voted “yes.”

34 Democrats voted “no,” 67% of which are members of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition.

A list of all the Democrats who voted “no” is below.

I’m glad to see that my Representative, Walt Minnick D ID-1 voted against this. At least some representatives listen to their constituents.
