Boccieri switches to "yes" on health care

WASHINGTON (AP) — Democratic Rep. John Boccieri is switching his vote to "yes" on President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.

The freshman Ohio lawmaker announced his decision at a Capitol Hill news conference on Friday. Boccieri opposed the House version of the bill last November.

Boccieri said he was standing up and doing what he believes in.

He is one of four Democrats to switch from no to yes in the past few days as Obama and Democratic leaders try to corral enough votes for the legislation. A vote is expected on Sunday.

Boccieri has been pressured on the issue. Labor unions and other groups backing health care reform ran ads in his district.
