Cantor Statement on Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) is constitutional and stands.

Congressman Cantor issued the following statement:

"The Supreme Court's decision to uphold Obamacare is a crushing blow to patients throughout the country. Obamacare has failed to keep the President's basic promise of allowing those who like their health care to keep it, while increasing costs and reducing access to quality care for patients. In this tough economy, jobs and economic growth are on the minds of most Americans, but Obamacare has increased uncertainty for small businessmen and women and forced them to put their hiring decisions on hold.

"During the week of July 9th, the House will once again repeal Obamacare, clearing the way for patient-centered reforms that lower costs and increase choice. We support an approach that offers simpler, more affordable and more accessible health care that allows people to keep the health care that they like.
"The Court's decision brings into focus the choice the American people have about the direction of our country. The President and his party believe in massive government intrusions that increase costs and take decisions away from patients. In contrast, Republicans believe in patient-centered, affordable care where health care decisions are made by patients, their families and their doctors, not by the federal government."
