Here's a list of how Maryland's members of Congress voted when the House successfully voted to repeal Obamacare Thursday.

WASHINGTON, DC — The House of Representatives, by the slimmest of margins, passed a health care bill on Thursday that would repeal and replace major parts of the Affordable Care Act. All Maryland representatives opposed it, except for one Republican. (see list below).

The final tally was 217-213, but Maryland representatives voted 7-1 against, according to the House website.

Maryland U.S. Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger, D-District 2, said in a statement he believes "this version is even worse than the last one." Ruppersberger voted against the measure because he thinks the AHCA will cost more and cover less and it allows insurance companies to change Americans with pre-existing conditions higher premiums.

"The whole point of healthcare reform was to curtail the unsustainable premium increases American families are struggling with. You do that by getting more people covered. This bill does neither," Ruppersberger said. "I get my health insurance from Obamacare, and, while it is not perfect, I believe Congress should be focused on making improvements to increase competition and drive down costs.”

Maryland U.S. Rep. Andy Harris, R-District 1, voted for the measure. He released a statement saying "there has been significant misinformation" about the AHCA bill.

"I want to be clear that the AHCA explicitly maintains, and even adds, protections for pre-existing conditions. The bill makes clear that under no circumstance can people be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition," Harris said.

Harris also said he believes Obamacare resulted in "skyrocketing health insurance prices, a diminishing choice of providers, and in some areas a dwindling to no choice of health insurance plans.
