Congressman Tim Griffin (AR-02) today issued the following statement in response to a second federal court ruling that the individual mandate, requiring Americans to carry insurance or pay a penalty, found in the Obama health care law violates the Constitution:

"I welcome the ruling in favor of the 26 states that sued the federal government over the constitutionality of the health care law. I voted to repeal the law earlier this month, and I look forward to continuing the process in the House to replace it with a new one that increases access, lowers costs, limits government, promotes job creation and follows the Constitution."
