Roe Disappointed with SCOTUS Obamacare Decision
The Affordable Care Act or Obamacare was upheld by the Supreme Court Thursday by 5 of the High Court’s Justices. Congressman Phil Roe of Tennessee says he’s disappointed with the decision as Obamacare will only increase the cost of healthcare for Americans. “It’s still got a bill that’s 500 plus billion coming out of medicare, it’s still has the independent payment advisory board…which will eventually ration care…it’s still got the device taxes, it’s still got the penalties if you don’t provide healthcare for business, and all those other things that drive the cost up.” Congressman Roe also says that he believes this landmark decision on healthcare will affect the dynamics of this year’s presidential election. “This fall election has now been defined, and I think what will happen is if the American people are still upset with the Bill they’ll make a political decision.”
