BERNIER STATEMENT ON SUPREME COURT RULING ON HEALTHCARE LAW
While I haven’t had the opportunity to read the entire Supreme Court decision yet, I have some initial impressions.
The first is that, with the ruling focused on the ability of Congress to tax the American people, this decision essentially makes a liar out of President Obama, who promised to never increase taxes on the middle class.
Secondly, it seems to me that the issue has been returned to the legislative branch. The next Congress will have the opportunity to repeal this burden on the American people and that’s the first thing I will be fighting for as Representative to the people in the 5th District.
