Topic - Julia Brownley
Democratic Rep. Ami Bera has been making a habit lately of bucking his own president and voting with the Republican majority in the House as it moves to amend or overturn parts of the national health care law.
Rep.-elect Julia Brownley of California shimmied and danced, smiling broadly. And that was before the Democrat even got the good news: She'd won the lottery.
"This is not a political play on my part. This is about trying to, when the opportunities come up, work toward improvement," she said. "I believe strongly that's where the majority of my constituents are."
Brownley said she wishes Republicans had sought to work with Democrats to improve the health care law rather than dismantle it.
