Grassley-090507-18363- 0032From Press Release


U.S. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) today made the following comment on the Supreme Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell on the President’s health care law.

“I respect the court and its role in our system of government, but Obamacare remains a terrible law.  It’s led to too many people losing the coverage they had and spending more for what coverage they can get.  Iowans tell me directly in town meetings and in emails and letters to my office that they don’t like the law.  Obamacare upended the whole health system instead of targeting what was wrong and fixing those problems.  Now the debate returns to the Congress and next year’s presidential election.  I’m committed to replacing Obamacare with health care reforms that empower consumers, drive down costs, and use marketplace incentives to make health care coverage accessible and affordable.  The current majority in Congress is committed to repealing Obamacare and replacing it with effective reforms driven by the marketplace, not the heavy hand of government.”
