The House voted 236-181 Wednesday, mostly along party lines, to pass a key procedural measure signaling its intent to repeal the new health care law.

Four Democrats joined the unanimous GOP majority in support of repeal: Reps. Dan Boren (D-OK), Larry Kissell (D-NC), Mike McIntyre (D-NC), and Mike Ross (D-AR)

The final vote on the repeal bill — better known now as the “Repealing the Job Killing Health Care Law Act” — is scheduled for Wednesday.[Correction: Due to an editing error, this post originally misreported the number of Democrats voting for the repeal rule.]
