Capito Statement On Supreme Court Ruling6/28/12
Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the President’s Healthcare law:
“For the past two years, I have listened to West Virginia caregivers, small business owners, doctors and constituents who overwhelmingly say that the President’s healthcare law is the wrong direction for America.
“While I respect the Supreme Court’s decision, I continue to believe that this law is bad for West Virginia families and the American economy. I have voted to repeal, dismantle and defund this law multiple times, and I will once again cast my vote for repeal in July.
“Going forward, I will continue to support replacing the law with commonsense, step-by-step reforms that lower the cost of care without burdening small businesses with higher taxes, crippling already weak state budgets, pushing families off of their current coverage and increasing healthcare costs. Instead of a government takeover of healthcare, I support addressing the rising cost of care with patient-centered reforms that protect the doctor-patient relationship.”
