U.S. Representative Kristi Noem (R-SD) issued the following statement on the one-year anniversary of the health care law:
"The new health care law has definitely not improved with age. One year later we are seeing increased premiums, higher and higher cost estimates for the law, states burdened with unfunded mandates, and an individual mandate that would fine Americans for the first time in history for inaction. It is no wonder a majority support its repeal and the courts are finding it unconstitutional. I support efforts to end implementation of the law and replace it with consumer driven reforms that will cut costs."
