One of the four Democrats likely to support repealing healthcare reform said Friday he's not facing "pushback" from party leaders.

Rep. Dan Boren (D-Okla.) suggested that there's more leeway for Democrats to vote for the GOP-led effort to repeal President Obama's signature legislative initiative.

"I think after the shellacking, as they say, within our caucus, a lot of people realize, 'Hey, maybe you should listen to your constituents and vote your conscience,' " Boren said on Fox News. "And I haven't gotten a lot of pressure, a lot of pushback.

"I can tell you the folks at home are very happy with me, and that's what we're going to do," he added.

Boren was one of the four Democrats who voted on Friday for a GOP rule governing the healthcare debate in a test vote for next week's planned vote on legislation to repeal healthcare reform.

The GOP is hoping that the nominal Democratic support for its legislation will give it the cover of bipartisanship, though no more than a handful of Democrats — even among the 13 remaining in Congress who'd opposed the original bill — are expected to vote for the bill.

The other Democrats to support the rule are Reps. Mike Ross (Ark.), Larry Kissell (N.C.) and Mike McIntyre (N.C.).
