Congressman Bartlett Comments on the Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare

Statement

"All that is legal is not moral. This same Supreme Court at a different time in history and different justices handed down the Dred Scott decision. I doubt there is a single justice today that would believe the Dred Scott decision was either moral or constitutional. I believe that future analysts will view this Supreme Court decision in the same light. We are a constitutional republic and respect the judicial process; however, I believe that Obamacare will be reversed by the people in November who strongly disagree with the Court's decision regarding the individual mandate.

The Supreme Court decision does not fix Obamacare which threatens to explode our deficit, does nothing to rein in skyrocketing health care costs, and includes new job killing taxes. I remain committed to working with colleagues from both parties on common sense reforms to eliminate these disastrous effects while fixing the pre-existing condition problem, retaining coverage for post adolescent children still in school and perhaps most important, a providing meaningful solution to the litigation cases excesses," said Congressman Roscoe G. Bartlett (MD-6).
