Nielsen Comments on Supreme Court Decision To Uphold The Obamacare As 'Tax'

Thursday, June 28, 2012

Assemblyman Jim Nielsen (R-Gerber) issued the following statement today following the Supreme Court decision to uphold the Obama Care Act.

"While I agree with the four dissenting justices who opined that the 'act is completely invalid', today's majority ruling from the Supreme Court is certainly a disappointment," said Nielsen. "The Court ruled today that Obamacare is nothing more than a massive tax increase on every American, likely the largest in U.S. history.  With a stagnant economic recovery and millions of Americans still unable to find jobs, it is imperative that Congress moves immediately to repeal this costly new tax.  I fear that Obamacare will do nothing more than confuse and diminish health care nationwide."

"I urge my constituents, and the majority of Americans who strongly disagree with this policy, to keep fighting and let their voices be heard," said Nielsen. "Now, more than ever, we need fiscally-responsible health care reforms that will give patients more affordable choices without raising taxes or growing government."
