“The court has upheld a concern many of us raised when the law was under debate. Namely; the Federal Government does not have the right to compel Americans to buy anything. This is one more tenant of ObamaCare that has proven unworkable. We now have a law on the books that will not improve the quality of care, will not reduce the cost of care, and will add billions to the national debt. This is a law we need to repeal and replace as soon as possible.”
