Long Statement on U.S. Supreme Court's Obamacare Ruling

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Billy Long issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court handed down their decision on the constitutionality of the president's health care law:

"I am extremely disappointed with the Supreme Court's decision. The Obama administration and Democrats who passed this harmful law were clear in stating that the mandate was not a tax, yet the Supreme Court chose to ignore that fact and uphold the mandate under the taxing provision granted to Congress. This decision is not only a blow to Americans who must deal with the consequences of government takeover of health care, but it is also a blow to democracy and the individual liberties this country was founded on.

"I will continue to fight in Congress to repeal this harmful law and replace it with patient-centered health care that addresses the rising cost of health care in this country."
