Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Bob Gibbs released the following statement following the United States Supreme Court decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act:

“I am disappointed in today's decision - but the fact that this law was ruled partially constitutional, does not mean it is good for the American People.  Our job creators have been hampered by Obamcare’s endless regulations and taxes, making it expensive and harder to hire new employees. Since being elected to Congress I have been focused on trying to create an environment to encourage job creators to expand and invest.

“Ohioans overwhelmingly supported a ballot initiative that Obamacare is bad for them and bad for the economy.  The Supreme Court today reinforced that Obamacare is in fact a massive tax increase on the American people and I look forward to standing with my fellow Ohioans and repealing Obamacare once and for all.”
