U.S. Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-Ga., made the following statement in response to the Supreme Court TMs ruling today on President Obama TMs health care law, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:
I am disappointed in today TMs decision. While I believe the individual mandate to directly contradict the Constitution, we must respect the decision of the Supreme Court. However, this is not the final chapter in the healthcare-reform debate. I will continue to push to repeal the law, and urge Congress and the next administration to work to replace Obamacare.
This law adds new taxes on an already overtaxed population, and adds regulation to an already over-regulated industry. We must address the skyrocketing costs of health care and its impact on individuals, families and small businesses while working together on transparent and measured reforms to ensure that everyone has access to quality and affordable care.
