Foxx Statement on Supreme Court ACA Ruling

Today, Republican Leader of the Education and Labor Committee Virginia Foxx (R-NC) gave the following statement after the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act by ruling that the states do not have standing to challenge the law’s individual mandate:
“It’s a shame the highest court in the country ruled today that Americans aren’t harmed by this broken law. Obamacare’s individual mandate restricts Americans’ freedoms by forcing them to purchase coverage they don’t want and can’t afford. Republicans eliminated the individual mandate penalty because it is harmful to the middle class. Today, the court again missed the mark by ignoring the negative impacts Obamacare and its mandates have on our nation’s health care system.
“While this unfortunate setback comes at the expense of Americans’ rights and freedoms, it does not weaken Republicans’ resolve to find workable solutions that will bring down the cost of health care and prescription drugs without further burdening taxpayers.”
