U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, the 2010 health care reform law:
"The Supreme Court ruling does not repudiate all of the problems with this law. Despite the Supreme Court's legal ruling allowing most aspects of the law to remain intact, that doesn't mean the policies set forth in the law are best for the American people or our economy. I continue to favor repeal of this health care law. We should respect the fact that most Americans don't want it."
