Frelinghuysen Statement on Supreme Court's Health Care Ruling6/28/12
Rep. Rodney Frelinghuysen
U.S. Supreme Court Decision on Affordable Care Act
“I am deeply disappointed in the Court’s decision. Our primary focus should be on jobs and the economy and this decision appears to affirm a whole host of new taxes, mandates and regulations on small business owners, raising health care costs and continuing uncertainty for employers.
“As a result of this ruling, millions of Americans may now have an IRS problem, since the Internal Revenue Service is the enforcer of the individual mandate and the dozens of other taxes imposed by new health care law.
“Congress should take this opportunity to re-engage the American people and enact patient-centered reforms that allow families to make their own choices about their own health care, visit the doctor of their choosing, and receive the care they and their doctor feel is best.”
