Olson Statement on King v. Burwell

June 25, 2015
Press Release

Rep. Pete Olson (TX-22) today issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court decision on Obamacare subsidies:

“The Supreme Court has spoken. We must respect their decision, even if we disagree with it. The Supreme Court’s job is to determine the Constitutionality of law. Both good and bad laws can be Constitutional. Today, the Supreme Court determined that a bad law that most Americans want repealed is Constitutional.

“Obamacare has broken every promise the president made when the law was passed - better care, lower cost, with their doctor of choice. It must be repealed in Congress and replaced with a new law that encourages competition, transparency, and lower costs. House Republicans have a plan to do just that.”
