AFP-Minnesota State Director John Cooney reacts to Supreme Court Ruling
ST. LOUIS PARK, MN – In response to today’s Supreme Court ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Americans for Prosperity Minnesota State Director John Cooney released the following statement:
“I am deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold this law. This was a bad law yesterday, and is a bad law today. It is unaffordable, irresponsible, and unaccountable. Most Americans are worried that this law will result in higher costs, fewer choices, and worse care for them and their families. And for good reason – they’re right.
“Minnesotans want real health care reform that gives them control of their personal health decisions – not unelected bureaucrats in Washington. The President’s plan is unaffordable, simply put, adding $1.15 trillion in new Washington spending is not the way to control health care costs.
“For years, Americans for Prosperity has vigorously opposed President Obama’s deeply flawed health care plan. AFP and our activists are committed to the full repeal of this law and will continue to work to have their voices heard on this matter.”
Over the next several days, AFP will launch a series of events around the country, including this Saturday at noon at the Bloomington DoubleTree Hotel, telling Congress ‘Hands Off My Health Care,’ and demanding a full repeal of Obama’s deeply flawed health care law.
Media are invited to attend.
