Congressman Bob Latta (R-Bowling Green) issued the following statement following the ruling made today by the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA):
"I am extremely disappointed with the Supreme Court's ruling this morning. Since the passage of PPACA, the American people have found that costs will go up not down, and many patients will not be able to keep the coverage they have currently. With the Court's ruling, we now know this as a massive tax increase on the middle class. American businesses, which have struggled during the recession, will not be able to create jobs that we so desperately need right now. I pledge to work alongside my colleagues to repeal the health care law and replace it with meaningful reform."
Congressman Latta is a member of the Health Subcommittee of the House Committee on Energy and Committee, which holds jurisdiction over health care issues.
