Forgive me for being a day late on this, as the D.C. bureau's attentions were swallowed by Pennsylvania's tart-tongued former senator yesterday, but the House staged a vote ordering committees to report out replacements for parts of the health care law (otherwise known as The Greatest Thing Since Sliced Bread or The Impending Apocalypse, depending on your political persuasion). After only three Democrats -- and none from Pennsylvania -- crossed the aisle to support the GOP repeal effort, 14 Democrats jumped on board the 253-175 "replace" vote.
From the Keystone State, Reps. Jason Altmire, D-McCandless, Mark Critz, D-Johnstown, and Tim Holden, D-Schuylkill, backed the nascent initiative to reshape the bill. Altmire and Holden voted against the health care law last year, while Critz -- who wasn't in office yet during the votes -- said during his campaign that he would have voted against it.
