Thune Statement on King v. Burwell Decision

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Sen. John Thune (R-S.D.), chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, issued the following statement regarding today’s Supreme Court decision on King v. Burwell. 

“Obamacare continues to be a disaster for many American families and businesses. Under this law, many Americans will continue to pay higher premiums, face an avalanche of regulations, and cope with the loss of their preferred doctors. Obamacare’s ‘top-down’ approach to health care has forced Americans off the plans that they liked, hurt job creation and reduced choices of doctors and hospitals.  The Republican-led Senate remains committed to repealing this fundamentally broken law and replacing it with patient-centered reforms that work for the American people.”
