Representative Frank Guinta (R, NH-01) issued the following statement:
"Although I am not pleased with the ruling, I respect the Supreme Court's decision. I have spoken out about this law's excesses ever since Congress passed it two years ago. One of the very first votes I cast in the House was to repeal it in its entirety.
"While questions about its constitutionality are now resolved, there are still problems with this law. For example, it will cut $580 billion from Medicare over the next 10 years. And its ability to effectively deliver genuine health care reform remains unanswered. I am ready to sit down with my colleagues from both sides of the aisle and health care community members to amend this law as needed. One of the first things I will do now is meet with health care professionals here in New Hampshire, as I frequently do, and get their input on the best way to proceed."
