Pence says Supreme Court decision “profoundly disappointing”

The following statement was issued Thursday by the office of Gov. Mike Pence: 

Indianapolis – Following the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling on King v. Burwell, Governor Mike Pence issued the following statement.

“The Supreme Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell is profoundly disappointing to me and every Hoosier who had hoped this ruling would give our nation the opportunity to start over on health care reform.

“Today’s display of judicial activism by the Supreme Court upholds this deeply flawed law to the detriment of millions of Hoosiers who will continue to be subject to the mandates and taxes in Obamacare.

“ObamaCare must be repealed and states must be given the flexibility to craft market-based solutions focused on lowering the cost of health care rather than growing the size of government. 

“It now falls to the American people to elect new leadership in Washington, D.C. so we can repeal ObamaCare and start over with health care reform based on personal responsibility and consumer choice rather than government mandates and taxes. Indiana will continue to be a leading voice in advancing those principles in the national debate.”
