King Releases Statement on Supreme Court’s ObamaCare Ruling
Congressman Steve King (R-Kiron) today issued the following statement following the Supreme Court’s ruling upholding ObamaCare:
“Today’s decision from the Supreme Court sets the stage for November’s election when Americans will have a clear choice – voting for Republicans who will repeal ObamaCare and install free market, common sense solutions or voting for Democrats who will vote to keep this burdensome law that has sent medical costs higher, cut Medicare by $532 billion and created trillions in new government spending we can’t afford.
“I have been ObamaCare’s number one opponent since it was forced upon us by President Obama and Nancy Pelosi. Last year my language to repeal ObamaCare passed the House. We will repeal this law and pull it out by its roots.
"Once we've repealed ObamaCare, we should enact simple solutions like allowing Americans to buy insurance across state lines, enact meaningful medical liability reform, strengthen the doctor-patient relationship, increase competition in the health care market and preserve and strengthen Medicare, not raid it. The focus of these reforms should be to reduce health care costs, not to impose mandates that increase costs and put quality health care out of reach.
“I am confident Americans’ voices will be heard this November when they elect a Republican Senate majority, make gains in the Republican House and send Mitt Romney to the Oval Office to sign the full repeal of ObamaCare.”
