Gingrey "Bitterly Disappointed" by Supreme Court Ruling


Location: Washington, DC

In response to the Supreme Court's decision to uphold Obamacare, the Republican members of the Georgia Congressional delegation today reaffirmed their commitment to the full repeal of the President's health care law. The members cited infringement upon personal freedoms, increased health care costs, and crippling taxes as to why it must be removed. In Georgia alone, the law will cost taxpayers an extra $4.83 billion over 10 years.

Simply put, I am confounded by the Supreme Court's decision. The President and Congressional Democrats repeatedly and steadfastly denied that Obamacare was a tax, yet that is exactly what the Court has deemed it. In doing so, the Court did indeed rewrite the statute and engage in judicial tax-writing, as the dissenting opinion states. I believe that this disappointing ruling will be disastrous for our health care system, patients, and physicians. As a Congressman, a physician, and most importantly, as an American, my top priority will remain the full repeal of President Obama's health care law. Health care decisions must remain between health care providers and their patients, and out of the hands of Washington bureaucrats.
