Gardner Statement on Supreme Court Decision in King v. Burwell

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision in the King v. Burwell case: 

“Obamacare began as partisan legislation hastily rammed through Congress without proper debate or consideration. The more than five years since its passage have been marked by policy cancellations, premium increases, and millions of Americans dissatisfied with the changes to the healthcare system. 

”Today’s decision bails out the careless, reckless authors of a law that has done real damage to our healthcare system. Obamacare’s problems, however, are not merely the result of poor writing. Even if perfectly authored, a government takeover of healthcare would be the wrong prescription for America. I remain committed to repealing Obamacare and replacing it with commonsense reforms that control costs, expand access to care, and protect the doctor-patient relationship.”
