ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Second district Congressman Sanford Bishop says he's proud of his vote on the historic health care law.

Bishop is back home while Congress is in recess for a couple of weeks.

He says he doesn't like everything about the law, but he says it will be good for the country. 

"Every President has tried to bring affordable accessible health care to all of the American people. This is the farthest we've come in that quest, and I'm very proud to have been a part of this watershed moment in our history. Although this bill is not perfect, we cannot let the perfect be the enemy of the good. And I think it's a good start," said Rep. Sanford Bishop, (D) Georgia.

Dougherty County Sheriff's deputies accompanied Bishop for part of his day.

Because of the threats to many Congressmen who voted for health care, they were encouraged to let law enforcers know their schedules while they're back home.
