Ernst responds to Supreme Court ruling

Health InsuranceFrom Press Release


U.S. Sen. Joni Ernst (R-IA) released the following statement after the Supreme Court issued a ruling in King v. Burwell. The court sided with the Obama administration and upheld the IRS regulation that provides subsidies to individuals who buy health insurance on a federal exchange setup by ObamaCare.

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling does not change the fundamental reality that ObamaCare is a poorly conceived and reckless law.

“As ObamaCare again finds itself under scrutiny of our highest court, it’s further affirmation that we need a workable solution for the millions of Americans who continue to face uncertainty over their health care due to this disastrous law.

“I remain committed to working towards a sustainable health care system that puts the focus back on Iowa families and individuals, which is why I support repealing and replacing ObamaCare with affordable, patient centered alternatives. I will continue working to help Iowans achieve the care they deserve that enhances competition, increases flexibility, constrains rising costs and ensures Americans have a voice over their own health care.”
