Shelby Reacts to King v. Burwell Decision

WASHINGTON, DC – Thursday, June 25, 2015 – U.S. Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) today released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s King v. Burwell decision:

“Today’s Supreme Court decision does not change the fact that Obamacare is an unworkable, deeply flawed, and damaging law.  The problems with Obamacare go far beyond the issue debated in King v. Burwell and continue to harm American families and small businesses.  Obamacare’s long list of broken promises has already caused Americans to struggle with higher premiums, to lose their preferred health insurance and doctors, and to be left with fewer choices.  Despite this ruling, I remain committed to working with my colleagues to put an end to the negative impacts of this disastrous law.”
