“If nothing else, today's health care decision underscores the importance of this election. The people of America are going to have a choice to make in November and clearly it's a choice that will bear upon the direction of this country as far as our health care is concerned.
“The decision today really indicates that we have entered an age in which government – Washington – will be controlling health care unless something changes. Most Americans, I believe, still like the health care that they have. The President has continued to say that his law will allow folks to keep the health care they like. What we've seen is that's just not the case. ObamaCare will preclude people from having the health care that they like.
“We have seen this law increase costs and we are committed to changing that. We are committed to making sure that we can return to patient-based health care in this country, where we can keep costs low and we can increase access. That's why when we return on the week of July 9th, I have scheduled a total repeal of ObamaCare to occur on Wednesday, July 11th. Then we can clear the way towards trying to again focus on accomplishing a health care future that is premised on patient-centered care, lowering cost and affording better access.”
