News Releases

U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., Ranking Member on the Senate Health, Education,
Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee, today released the following statement
after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled on the new health care law:

“It is disappointing that the Supreme Court has upheld the Constitutionality of the
new health care law.  Just because it is Constitutional, does not mean it
isn’t still bad policy.  And just because the Court upheld the law does
not change the fact that the American people have overwhelming concerns about
it. In fact, the Court affirmed that the new health care law is a massive tax
increase on the American people.

“Congress must get serious about fixing our broken health care system. We can start by
changing this misguided health care law that has divided the American people
and failed to address rising health care costs.  Congress should work
together to make common-sense, step-by-step health reforms that can truly lower
the cost of health care.  I was pleased to see that the Supreme Court
significantly narrowed the Medicaid expansions because states cannot afford
them. Hardworking Americans are still struggling in this anemic economy and
need real action to make health care more affordable.”
