Rep Artur Davis (D-AL)

*Rep. Artur Davis, D-Ala., a Congressional Black Congress member and gubernatorial candidate, has long been a staunch opponent of President Barack Obama’s transcendent health insurance reform, which will increase Americans’ access to health care, reports Afro.com.

One day after the bill’s passage in the House, Davis released a statement slamming the president’s health care reform plan and supporting his decision to vote against it.

“I believe the no vote I cast tonight was the right one and a significant number of other Democrats joined me in casting that no vote,” Davis said. “Going forward, I hope for the good of our country that this legislation ends up working and that my reservations are proved wrong. I joined many other Americans in hoping that Congress can move past this enormously divisive debate and get on with the business of strengthening our economy.”
