Congressman Frank Lucas today made the following statement after the Supreme Court of the United States reached the decision to uphold President Obama's Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly referred to as ObamaCare.
"I am disappointed by the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the president's health care law," said Lucas. "Americans have spoken loudly in opposition to this unworkable law, and it is discouraging the court has found it constitutional. Families should have the freedom to make their own health care decisions, and ObamaCare takes that freedom away, while in-turn costing our nation trillions of dollars without addressing our health care problems.
"I will continue to work with my colleagues in the House of Representatives to fully repeal the law and enact reforms to our nation's health care system that protect Americans' access to health care. We need to refocus our efforts to make efficient and cost effective changes to the system, while also ensuring health care treatments are never rationed by government officials."
