Contact: Doug Heye, Megan Whittemore

“As we know we are anticipating a landmark decision tomorrow from the Supreme Court. We are well aware that the ObamaCare bill has denied the President the ability to fulfill the promise he made in the outset which was that if people like their health care they could keep it. People are worried about losing their health care if they haven’t already. We know that the bill has added to the cost of people’s health care. We believe, as House Republicans, that the ObamaCare bill was a mistake. We would like to see the kind of health care that will allow patients to make decisions, not bureaucrats here in Washington.

"As we know, this bill has also presented big problems for our employers. Small businessmen and women are having a difficult time keeping the lights on, much less hiring new people. ObamaCare just makes it more difficult because it makes it more expensive for these business people to create jobs.

"Gallup is out with a new poll which says that economic confidence is the lowest it’s been since January. We know that businesses in America are not starting up the way they used to. That’s why we in the House remain committed to pro-growth economic policies. We believe that we’ve got to put incentives in place for working families and small businesses to grow. We are going to stay focused on stopping the tax hike before we leave here for the August recess and ensure that we continue to promote policies that will help create jobs and end the regulatory overreach by this Administration standing in the way.”
