Congressman Steve Womack released the following statement in response to the ruling:
"I am surprised and disappointed with today's ruling. With respect for the court's decision, I will continue to advocate for full repeal of this massive expansion of government and do away with an unwanted and restrictive tax on the American people by replacing it with common sense, patient-centered reforms.
"The majority of Third District Arkansans are opposed to this law, and I will continue to fight on their behalf to fully repeal it.
"This is a bad day for America -- and a major victory for big government."
