A vote of "conscience"

Having voted "Yea" on the resolution to condem Rep. Joe Wilson, Freshman Rep. Joseph "Ahn" Cao (R-La.) again placed principal over party by voting in favor of the House health care reform bill.  Here is what Cao said after casting his vote:

"I felt last night's decision was the right decision for my district even though it was not the popular decision for my party,"

Cao's vote dashed the prediction of House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) that no Republican would support it the health care reform bill.
