McConnell: Court’s Ruling Underscores the Need to Repeal Obamacare

Court’s Ruling Underscores the Need to Repeal Obamacare

‘Today’s decision does nothing to diminish the fact that Obamacare’s mandates, tax hikes, and Medicare cuts should be repealed and replaced with common sense reforms that lower costs and that the American people actually want.’

 

Washington, D.C.– U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the President’s healthcare law:

 

“Today’s decision makes one thing clear: Congress must act to repeal this misguided law. Obamacare has not only limited choices and increased health care costs for American families, it has made it harder for American businesses to hire. Today’s decision does nothing to diminish the fact that Obamacare’s mandates, tax hikes, and Medicare cuts should be repealed and replaced with common sense reforms that lower costs and that the American people actually want. It is my hope that with new leadership in the White House and Senate, we can enact these step-by-step solutions and prevent further damage from this terrible law.”

 

Background: Sen. McConnell spearheaded the effort by Senate Republicans to repeal Obamacare. He delivered more than 110 floor speeches prior to and after passage of the President’s health care law, and he and his colleagues filed four amicus briefs in court arguing against the constitutionality of the law. Every Republican senator opposed final passage of the law, and Sen. McConnell followed through with his promise to make repeal of Obamacare one of the first votes taken by the Senate at the start of the 112th Congress. He has pledged to make repeal of the health care law the first vote next year if Republicans are elected to the Senate majority in 2013.
