NANCY CORDES, CBS NEWS: One-fifth of House Democrats ignored a White House veto [threat] and joined House Republicans to pass a bill that would not just reinstate the plans, but allow new people to sign up for them. West Virginia's Rep. Nick Rahall was one of those Democrats. CORDES: Did you vote yes because you think that the president didn't go far enough? REP. NICK RAHALL (D-WV): I voted yes -- perhaps that was part of the reason, but the main reason was I'm not sure he had the legal underpinning to do what he did.
