House repeals healthcare law

The House voted on Wednesday to repeal the sweeping healthcare law enacted last year, as Republicans made good on a central campaign pledge and laid down the first major policy marker of their new majority.

The party-line vote was 245-189, as three Democrats joined all 242 Republicans in supporting repeal.

That's a bipartisan vote to repeal Obamacare.  Also, note that there were more votes for the repeal than there were in favor of the original bill.
