Rodney Davis, Republican nominee for the 13th District in Congress, released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's ruling on the Affordable Care Act:
"I have said from the beginning that Obamacare must be repealed. Nothing has changed. In fact, this issue defines the importance of this election. We must repeal this law to prevent the massive tax increase on the middle class, stop the $2.6 trillion cost, and end cuts to Medicare contained in Obamacare that Nancy Pelosi delivered. The residents of Central and Southwestern Illinois can prevent further harm with a Congressman who will fight to repeal this law and prevent Nancy Pelosi from taking power again."
As I've traveled the 13th District, I hear from small business owners, farmers, self-employed folks, and others, who all believe Obamacare is a drastic overreach of the federal government. They believe it will cost jobs and take choice out of the health care process.
I will continue to fight for a market-based solution that gives patients choices and lowers the cost of health care."
