Today, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled Obamacare constitutional. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) issued the following statement on the ruling:
"Today's Supreme Court decision is a huge tax increase on the American people. The President's healthcare bill, which was written behind closed doors, dramatically increases taxes, fees, and the cost of healthcare for all Americans. Obamacare was supposed to lower the price of healthcare. Instead, it has done the exact opposite -- the price of healthcare has skyrocketed. With the individual mandate, President Obama is slamming the American people with a burdensome new tax. It has also been a major factor in the sluggish growth of our economy and anemic job creation. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to repeal Obamacare in order to protect Americans' access to the care they need, from the doctors they choose, at a price they can afford."
