Washington, D.C. – Senator Ron Johnson (WI) released the following statement in advance of attending Tuesday’s Supreme Court oral arguments regarding Obamacare:
“I was privileged to attend the opening oral arguments on the constitutionality of Obamacare that were presented to the Supreme Court on Monday. I have been very vocal on how Obamacare will reduce the quality and innovation of America’s health care system and increase the cost to consumers and taxpayers.
“Two years after its passage, a majority of Americans remain hostile to Obamacare. A recent New York Times poll found barely more than a third of Americans still support it.
“I'm not an attorney, but it doesn't take a legal scholar to understand the threat Obamacare represents to our freedom.
“Unfortunately, some Americans are willing to exchange their freedom for a false promise of economic security. Far more Americans, and I am certainly among them, believe Obamacare violates basic freedoms guaranteed under our Constitution. In fact, in my lifetime, I can think of no law passed by Congress that grabs more power away from its citizens and steals more freedom than Obamacare. It is my hope that the Supreme Court rules this monstrosity unconstitutional.”
