From the Daily Caller:
Democratic Rep. Mike Ross, a Blue Dog from Arkansas, will vote against President Obama’s health-care reform, a spokesman told The Daily Caller Monday.
“He’s a no,” spokesman Brad Howard said by e-mail, in response to an ongoing survey of all 38 House Democrats who voted against health care legislation in the fall.
Asked why Ross had decided to go against the president’s bill, Howard provided this comment from the congressman:
“I voted against the House health care reform bill last year and opposed the Senate version, too. I remain opposed to both of them or any similar version presented to us again,” Ross said.
“I support health care reform in this country, but the current bills we have before us are too big, too costly, and the people who send me to Washington to be their voice are opposed to them and this process.”
Ross had previously not given an answer since The Daily Caller began surveying the 38 no votes over the last two weeks.
