Congress Must Now Use Reconciliation to Repeal Obamacare


Washington, DC – The Club for Growth issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court released its decision in the King v. Burwell Obamacare case:

“With health insurance premiums skyrocketing as a result of Obamacare mandates, today’s decision is nothing less than a crushing blow to average Americans,” said Club for Growth President David McIntosh. “The Supreme Court has validated a wealth distribution scheme that will continue to drive up the price of coverage, pushing it toward unaffordability for working Americans. So long as Obamacare’s mandates and relentless regulations are left in place, there is no good outcome. The American people believe both subsidies and mandates are wrong, so it’s now up to Congress to use reconciliation to repeal Obamacare, and Congress should continue to do so until there is a president who is willing to sign that repeal.”

The Club for Growth is the nation’s leading group promoting economic freedom through legislative involvement, issue advocacy, research, and education.
