Holtz-Eakin Statement On King v. Burwell Decision
American Action Forum President Douglas Holtz-Eakin made the following statement today regarding the Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell.
“The Supreme Court’s decision ends the detour into the legality of drafting and returns the focus to the core problem with Obamacare: it is poor health insurance policy, poor health care policy, poor budget policy, and poor economic policy. Today’s ruling ensures that growth will continue to be impaired, taxes will continue to rise, dangerous entitlement spending will feed the unsustainable federal budget, and families will be burdened with expensive health insurance that provides inadequate access to actual care.”
