Davis should tell truth about why he voted no

It is time for Artur Davis to start telling the truth.

I would have no problem with Artur Davis voting against President Obama’s health care bill if he was really standing on principle, but Artur Davis’s vote against the president’s health care bill was based on political calculation.

Once again Artur Davis shows that his own political ambition comes before the voters of District 7.

Artur Davis should tell the truth to the people of District 7.

The real reason why he voted no to President Obama’s health care bill is because he is running for governor of Alabama and the bill is not a popular one across the state.

He should tell the voters he felt his chance to become Alabama’s next governor would hurt by voting yes to President Obama’s bill.

He should stop pretending that his vote was based on his principles. It is just an insult to the intelligence of the people of District 7.
