Five Democrats join Republicans in voting to repeal health law

The House of Representatives' 244-185 vote to repeal the 2010 federal health care fell largely along party lines. But not always.

239 Republicans voted to repeal. 185 Democrats voted not to repeal. And five Democrats joined the Republicans in okaying repeal.

They were moderates, some of whom are considered vulnerable in 2012.

The roster: Jim Matheson of Utah, Mike McIntyre and Larry Kissell of North Carolina, Mike Ross of Arkansas and Dan Boren of Oklahoma.
