Duncan Disappointed by Health Ruling

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

Congressman John J. Duncan, Jr. (R-Tenn.) released the following statement Thursday in response to the Supreme Court ruling on the Affordable Care Act:

"I am very disappointed with this decision, and I believe over the next several years it will cause medical costs to go up much higher than they are now.

"The Supreme Court has confirmed what most knew all along -- this bill is a giant tax on the American people. If and when this law is fully implemented, it will be against the law to not buy health insurance; and if you don't, the IRS will tax and penalize you.

"This is the biggest expansion of federal power I have seen during my time in Congress. I hope we can pass a full repeal or at the least some major reforms in the next Congress."
