Rep. Wagner Statement on King v. Burwell Decision

June 25, 2015

Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-Mo.) issued the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court of the United States’ decision on King v. Burwell, a case determining the legality of certain health care exchange subsidies. The Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Obama Administration.

“Today’s Supreme Court decision does not change the fact that Obamacare is a deeply flawed law that puts an undue burden on hardworking Americans,” Rep. Wagner said. “We will continue to focus on protecting the American people – and offering new choices for quality, affordable health care – not protecting this failed law. Missourians shouldn’t have to suffer higher health care costs – they deserve a patient-centered solution.”
