"Hello, this is Congressman Bill Cassidy. We heard today that the Supreme Court has upheld the President's health care law. I consider this unfortunate. Most Americans wished that the Supreme Court had struck down the individual mandate at least.
"But I will say that this will not deter my efforts or those of House Republicans to replace the President's health care law with something which achieves the goal of providing access to quality health care at an affordable cost, but to replace it with something which does this through free market mechanisms and not through expanded government and higher taxes. I look forward to listening to you and working with all the American people to achieve these goals."
