Robert Hurt on healthcare ruling: ‘Disappointing’

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after the Supreme Court rendered its decision upholding the President’s healthcare law.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is disappointing news for the people I represent, so many of whom continue to be negatively impacted by the President’s healthcare law.  We continue to see employers being forced to cut working hours for their employees; we see families being unable to keep healthcare plans they have always counted on; and we see unsustainable increases in insurance premiums, co-pays, and deductibles.

“Today’s decision does nothing to change these facts.  We in the House of Representatives must continue to pass measures that will minimize this fundamentally flawed law’s effects on the American people while we work to replace the President’s healthcare law with substantive reform based upon market-oriented principles.”
