Rep. Young Comments on Supreme Court’s Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Alaskan Congressman Don Young released the following statement today in response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision on the constitutionality of ObamaCare (The Affordable Care Act):

“Today's decision by the Supreme Court does not change the fact that ObamaCare sticks the American people with new taxes, new regulations and devastating cuts to Medicare. 

“When it comes to the individual mandate, this ruling leaves the American people with two very bad choices – either pay a higher insurance premium or face a massive tax hike. The unfortunate irony today is that ObamaCare was saved because it is a new tax on the American people – which is something this President promised would not happen.

“We must repeal and replace this law with a bill that increases accessibility, portability and affordability for the American people – and that’s what I intend on fighting for.”

Congressman Young voted to repeal ObamaCare in January, 2011. To read more about this vote, click here.
