U.S. Representative Kristi Noem (R-SD) issued the following statement supporting U.S. District Court Judge Robert Vinson's ruling on the health care law:
"The health care law should have never been passed in the first place simply because of its negative impact on small businesses and job creation, but efforts to undo it are on the march. A majority in the U.S. House sent a strong message earlier this month passing a repeal measure, and now the courts are exposing the law's unconstitutionality. I support continued efforts to dismantle this unconstitutional law through the courts. Senate leaders should also schedule an up-or-down vote on repeal as soon as possible."
