WASHINGTON – House Republican Conference Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) issued the following statement today, one year after the Supreme Court deemed President Obama's health care law constitutional:
"Today marks one year since the Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of President Obama's health care law. A year later, it is more evident than ever before that a constitutional law isn't necessarily an effective one. Hardworking American all across this country – moms and dads taking care of their families, seniors relying on their benefits, and the most vulnerable in our communities – are suffering because this law is making their health care worse. Premiums have risen, many Americans have lost their health insurance, medical innovation has been stymied, and the exorbitant costs of health care have prevented job growth. It is unfair that the American people are paying the price for this disastrous policy. That's why House Republicans will continue to work on health care solutions that help Americans, not hurt them."
