Governor Jack Dalrymple today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on the Obama Administration's health care plan:
"The fact that the Supreme Court decision permits mandated health care coverage does not mean that the Obama Administration's health care plan is good policy for the nation. The health care plan is wrong for North Dakota. Our citizens want the freedom to make their own decisions about their health-care coverage.
Instead of embracing government-run health care supported by a tax on the American people, we should be pursuing market-based reforms that make heath care more affordable, that encourage greater participation and provide Americans with more choices.
I call on Congress to enact meaningful reforms that reflect the wishes of the American people."
