So how did members vote? Let's take a look:
ON THE MEDICAL DEVICE TAX:
Final tally: 248 to 174.
How many Republicans voted yes?: 231.
How many Democrats voted yes?: 17.
How many Republicans voted no?: 0.
How many Democrats voted no?: 174.
How many lawmakers didn't vote?: 9.
Votes Notes: The big question with this vote was which Democrats would join Republicans in voting yes. They were: Reps. Jim Matheson (Utah), Scott Peters (Calif.), Bill Owens (N.Y.), John Barrow (Ga.), William Enyart (Ill.), Dan Maffei (N.Y.), Ron Barber (Ariz.), Patrick Murphy (Fla.), Mike McIntyre (N.C.), Nick Rahall (W. Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (Ariz.), Brad Schneider (Ill.), Tammy Duckworth (Ill.), John Delaney (Md.), Cheri Bustos (Ill.) and Sean Maloney (N.Y.) and Jerry McNerney (Calif.).
Several of the Democrats who voted yes represent competitive districts and several of them -- Barber, Maffei, Sinema, Duckworth, Delaney, Bustos, Schneider and Maloney -- are freshmen lawmakers tapped for the job during elections where Obamacare was a big factor.
ON THE BILL TO DELAY OBAMACARE FOR ONE YEAR:
Final tally: 231 to 192.
How many Republicans voted yes?: 229.
How many Democrats voted yes?: 2.
How many Republicans voted no?: 2.
How many Democrats voted no?: 190.
Votes Notes: The two Democrats voting yes were Matheson and McIntyre, who, as has been noted before, are the two-most vulnerable Democrats and almost always vote with Republicans on key or controversial votes. The two Republicans who voted for the measure were Chris Gibson (R-N.Y.) and Richard Hanna (R-N.Y.), who hail from two Upstate New York swing districts that Democrats plan to target aggressively next year.
