FIRST ON 3: McIntyre votes YES to repeal healthcare; One of only four Democrats


By Shane D'Aprile
The Hill

Just four House Democrats voted "yes" Friday on a procedural vote to move ahead with consideration of a measure to repeal the healthcare law - reports The

Democratic Reps. Dan Boren (Okla.), Larry Kissell (N.C.), Mike McIntyre (N.C.) and Mike Ross (Ark.) all voted in favor of the rule governing debate on the bill. Of the four, Kissell is the only one who has said he will not vote "yes" on repeal.

Kissell told The Hill earlier this week that although he was glad the new GOP majority was bringing the measure to the floor, he did not intend to vote in favor of it next week.

"Get it on the floor, let everybody vote, and then let's focus on the economy and get people back to work, because that's what the American people want us to do," Kissell said Wednesday.
