Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN-05) released the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision on President Obama's health care law:
"Today, the Supreme Court handed down its ruling on the President's health care law, upholding Obama's signature legislation as a tax increase on the American people. This decision, while extremely disappointing, reminds us that while the Supreme Court can rule whether a law is constitutional or not, it cannot rule on whether it is good policy. Simply put, this law is bad for our struggling economy. We must work towards full repeal and replace it with a common-sense, step-by-step approach to health care reform that reduces costs and puts care in the hands of the patient and their doctor."
