Health care: How Maryland members voted
Maryland's congressional delegation voted 6 to 2 Saturday night in favor of passage of the landmark health-care reform bill, with only first-term Democrat Frank Kratovil breaking with his party and voting no. In a statement, Kratovil called the bill too expensive and said: "I was not able to support the bill before Congress today because I do not believe it meets my criteria for a sustainable solution."
