LaTourette Says Health Care Decision 'Disappointing'
Now that the bill is deemed constitutional, LaTourette said it's the politician's job to see if it's good policy. Do you agree?
U.S. Rep. Steven C. LaTourette (OH-14) today released the following statement on the Supreme Court's ruling on the President's health care overhaul:
"The decision today should put to rest the notion that Chief Justice Roberts is a partisan rubber stamp. Today's decision, while disappointing, is an example of what the Founding Fathers envisioned as three independent branches of government. Now that the Supreme Court has ruled the bill is not unconstitutional, it is for the nation's elected leadership to determine if it is good policy," LaTourette said.
"I've always believed there were some good things within the law, like covering pre-existing conditions and keeping your children on your insurance up to age of 26. Now that the highest court in the land has spoken, I still worry the law takes away from the patient doctor relationship and puts more decisions in the hands of bureaucrats. I remain concerned that the law lacks common sense and does nothing to reduce cost for those who currently have coverage and there are a whole slew of new taxes that are certainly not good for hardworking taxpayers."
