Affordable Care Act Dealt Setback by Federal Court


U.S. Congressman Kevin Brady of Texas, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Health Subcommittee, released the following statement regarding the court decision of Halbig v. Burwell:

“While I maintain that the Affordable Care Act is one of the worst-written laws to ever get shoved down the throats of the American people, I’m thankful that these judges upheld the plain reading of the text. Congressional Democrats crafted this law to compel states to either set up their own exchanges or forego federal subsidies. When their plans were thwarted by clear-thinking governors, they simply ignored their own words, refusing to enforce the law as it was written. No one – not the President and certainly not unaccountable agency bureaucrats –  should be able to claim that a law says something it simply doesn’t. This ruling is a victory for the rule of law and the American people.”
