Fight for Healthcare Freedom Isn’t Over; SCOTUS Ruling Does not Change Demand for Full Repeal
Topeka, Kan. – The Kansas chapter of the grassroots group Americans for Prosperity reaffirmed its commitment to full repeal of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in response to the Supreme Court’s decision this morning.
“Kansans recognize that this law is a threat to our liberty,” said AFP-Kansas state director Derrick Sontag. “While the Supreme Court may have missed this one, taxpayers are still paying attention and now expect Congress to do the right thing. We won’t stand idly by while this law spends over a trillion dollars and places bureaucrats between patients and their doctors.
“Since 2009 a majority of Kansans have supported a full repeal of the Affordable Care Act in large part due to its threat to individual freedoms. This ruling will not change the opposition to the law that exists in Kansas.
“It is especially disappointing to know that Kansans won’t have the opportunity to cast a vote on the Kansas Health Care Freedom Amendment this November. While the Kansas House overwhelmingly supported placing this matter on the ballot, the Senate did not. AFP-Kansas will be educating citizens as to which Senators denied them the opportunity to vote on this important piece of legislation.”
