Obligatory National News Update

Not that you should be looking here for any future stories on this subject, but House Democrats passed their "Affordable Health Care for America Act" last night.
One Republican voted for the bill, and 39 Democrats didn't.
Any guesses on the two Middle Georgia Dems who broke with their party and voted against the bill?
The Washington Post has an interesting info graphic on how each member of the House voted, how much money they get from health-care interests and the percentage of their constituents who are without health insurance.
21 percent of residents in both the eighth and twelfth districts are without health insurance.
