ORLANDO, Fla. – The U.S. House of Representatives voted 217-213 Thursday to advances a bill that addresses their longtime pledge to erase the 2010 Affordable Care Act, also known as "Obamacare."

The New York Times had five reporters present during the decision to track how each representative voted.

Only one Florida Republican congresswoman voted no, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinem (R-District 27). The rest of the 15 GOP Florida representatives voted to approve the bill.
