Sacramento, CA – Tea Party Express, the nation’s largest tea party political action committee, has reaffirmed its commitment to repealing Obamacare after the Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act was constitutional.
Amy Kremer, Chairman of the Tea Party Express, said, “The Supreme Court ruled to uphold this unprecedented intrusion of the federal government into our personal health care decisions. The American people still reject this legislation as bad policy and unwanted government interference with their lives. We will continue to work to defeat Obamacare at the ballot box in November by electing fiscal conservatives ready and willing to represent the will of the people by fully repealing every piece of this legislation.
“While we are disappointed in the majority opinion of the Court, we cannot ignore how President Barack Obama and the Democratic Congress squandered over a year of his Administration on an unpopular law rather than address the important economic issues that continue to plague our financial well-being.
“We are focused on taking control of the Senate, reinforcing our 2010 gains in the House, and defeating President Obama. These key objectives will open the door for a wave of new conservatives in Washington who are committed to repealing Obamacare. This fundamentally flawed piece of legislation should be replaced with pro-growth free market solutions that will create sustainable healthcare policies for future generations,” Kremer concluded.
