RGA Statement on Supreme Court Decision

Republican Governors Association Chairman Bob McDonnell issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:

“Today’s ruling crystallizes all that’s at stake in November’s election.  The only way to stop Barack Obama’s budget-busting health care takeover is by electing a new president.

Barack Obama’s health care takeover encapsulates his Presidency: Obamacare increases taxes, grows the size of government and puts bureaucrats over patients while doing nothing to improve the economy.

It’s never been more important that we elect a President who understands the marketplace and will make job creation his top priority.  By replacing Barack Obama with Mitt Romney, we will not only stop the federal government’s healthcare takeover, but will also take a giant step towards a full economic recovery.”
