Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare
DES MOINES, Iowaâ€“ The Republican Party of Iowa released the following statement today from Iowa GOP Chairman A.J. Spiker in response to the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare:
â€œPresident Obama clearly lied to the American people when he promised not to raise taxes on middle class Americans. Obamacare not only raises taxes on every single Iowan, but also guarantees higher health care costs and deficits in perpetuity. The winners today are big corporate health insurance companies who lobbied vigorously for this law and government bureaucrats, while patients have lost control over their personal heath care decisions.
â€œThe Supreme Courtâ€™s decision today is a set back for believers of individual liberty and smaller government all across Iowa, but rest assured this will only energize us even further. The Republican Party of Iowa will be working tirelessly to send Mitt Romney to the White House along with a full Republican delegation to Congress in order to repeal Obamacare in its entirety and replace it with meaningful market-driven reforms that will reduce costs, protect patients and increase quality of care.”
