U.S. Congressman John Barrow (GA-12) today issued the following statement on the announcement that the U.S. Supreme Court fully upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA).
Congressman Barrow said:
"This health care legislation was flawed from the beginning, which is why I voted against this law in committee and twice on the House floor. For the most part, the Supreme Court has ruled that the law doesn't violate the Constitution, but that won't fix the problems the law doesn't solve, and it won't fix the problems the law actually makes worse. We have to cut spending and cut health costs, but it starts with rejecting the false choice being offered by both parties, that it's all or nothing."
