North Carolina had more Democrats than any other state in the country cross party lines and vote against health care reform. Three conservative Democrats joined all five North Carolina Republicans in voting against the bill that passed the U.S. House Sunday night.

First-term lawmakers Larry Kissell and Heath Shuler joined Mike McIntyre in opposing the health care overhaul legislation. Nationwide, they were among 34 dissident Democrats who joined every Republican in opposition.

The Senate-passed bill cleared the House on a 219-212 vote.
