AFP Wisconsin Responds To Supreme Court Ruling
Court Decision Provides No Relief To The Many Struggling Under Obamacare
MADISON, Wis. – Today, Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s decision earlier this morning to uphold the federal Obamacare Exchange in the controversial case, King v. Burwell:
“The Court’s decision today offers no relief to Obamacare’s many victims,” said Americans for Prosperity State Director Eric Bott. “For far too long, Obamacare’s burdensome taxes and mandates have wreaked havoc on American families and businesses. This law was hurting people yesterday and will continue to do so tomorrow.”
“Obamacare remains wildly unpopular and for good reason: it limits access to care and has sent premiums skyrocketing. Americans for Prosperity Wisconsin will continue pressing Congress to provide relief from the law’s expensive mandates and continue fighting for patient-centered reforms that work.”
A spokesman for the chapter said they planned to direct the public to voice their discontent with the law by signing the petition at www.americansforprosperity.org/burwell.
The national organization also announced plans to launch a significant digital buy with an ad advocating for people’s health over politics, which will reach most major media markets in the United States.
