Congressman Bob Turner (NY-09) was disappointed in the United States Supreme Court's decision today to uphold ObamaCare.
"Today's decision by the United States Supreme Court to uphold ObamaCare is disappointing. While declared constitutional, the Supreme Court's ruling does not change the fact that it is still a very bad law. Congress has already found many mandates in ObamaCare that would hurt small businesses and kill jobs. Several more taxes and burdensome regulations on small businesses are set to go into effect in the next two years. Congress must now rededicate itself to repealing Obamacare and replacing it with commonsense proposals that will lower health care costs for all Americans.
"Today's decision is complicated and it will take time to fully understand. However, one thing is clear; this decision has made the law's implementation more complicated and difficult for states, small business and families. This is not what we need in these trying economic times."
