U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee (R-Miss.) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's opinion on the constitutionality of the president's health care law:

"I am extremely disappointed by the decision. However, the Supreme Court has stated plainly what the President and his allies went to great lengths to deny: Obamacare is a tax. In fact, it is a massive tax hike on the American people. Obamacare was bad law yesterday and it's still bad law today. We must continue to work for full repeal of Obamacare and for legislation that lowers costs by giving individuals control over their health care decisions. This ruling also highlights the critical importance of the election this fall. The Supreme Court has had its say in June; the people will have their say in November."
