Cruz: Halbig Decision Is A ‘Repudiation Of Obamacare And All The Lawlessness That Comes With It’

Senator Ted Cruz Speaks At The Heritage Action Defund Obamacare Town Hall
Today, the U.S. Court of Appeals ruled that the federal subsidies for health insurance were not properly designed.

Nobody tried harder than U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas to stop Obamacare from being implemented.

Cruz released the following statement in reaction the Halbig v. Burwell decision.

 “The D.C. Circuit’s decision today in Halbig v. Burwell is a repudiation of Obamacare and all the lawlessness that has come with it,” said Sen. Cruz. “The Obama Administration, through the Internal Revenue Service, has attempted to dispense revenues to the states without proper congressional authorization, robbing Congress of its constitutionally-provided power of the purse. This decision restores power to Congress and to the people and if properly enforced, should shield citizens from Obamacare’s insidious penalties, mandates, and subsidies. This is a significant victory for the American people and the rule of law, but we must not rest. Americans will continue to lose jobs, pay higher premiums, and receive fewer healthcare choices because of this disastrous law. Every last word of Obamacare must be repealed to restore jobs, growth, and opportunity in our country.”
