U.S. Senator Pat Roberts (R-Kan.) released the following statement today on the Supreme Court's ruling to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA):
"I'm deeply disappointed in the Supreme Court's decision to keep Obamacare in place. This is the wrong decision for our country. After two years, we have seen the problems and pitfalls of this law and they fall squarely on the shoulders of patients and Kansas families. The Court has affirmed that Obamacare is a new, additional tax. Care will cost more, and access to quality care will be reduced. No wonder a majority of Americans oppose it.
"It's now up to the Congress to repeal and replace this law with step by step, common-sense, cost-cutting solutions that work for Kansans and all Americans and that's what I will work to do in the Senate. There is no question today's decision is a real setback for America and will make our work that much harder."
