Texas Governor Rick Perry's statement on Obamacare ruling



by Joseph Earnest  June 28, 2012                   


Newscast Media AUSTIN, TexasGov. Rick Perry today released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the federal health care reform bill:

"This ruling will be a stomach punch to the American economy. It is a shocking disappointment to freedom-loving Americans desperate to get our country back on track. Obamacare is bad for the economy, bad for health care, bad for freedom. Americans have made clear their overwhelming opposition to its convoluted, burdensome and overreaching mandates.

"Freedom was frontally attacked by passage of this monstrosity - and the Court utterly failed in its duty to uphold the Constitutional limits placed on Washington. Now that the Supreme Court has abandoned us, we citizens must take action at every level of government and demand real reform, done with respect for our Constitution and our liberty."  

Based on the reaction from the Republican governors who said they would ignore the Supreme Court's ruling and do nothing until after the election, it is now clear that this year's election will hinge on health care.  Some analysts believe it plays in favor of Mitt Romney because the majority of Independents are against being compelled to purchase health care they may not need.

Mitt Romney has vowed to repeal the health care law and released a statement saying: "Today, the Supreme Court upheld Obamacare. But regardless of what the Court said about the constitutionality of the law, Obamacare is bad medicine, it is bad policy, and when Mitt Romney is president, the bad news of Obamacare will be over. This November it's all on the line. The stakes couldn't be higher."
