Bennett on SCOTUS Decision

COLUMBUS - Today, Ohio Republican Party Chairman Bob Bennett released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling on the President's health care law:

"The Supreme Court's decision doesn't change the fact that Obamacare is a bad law and is another burdensome tax on hardworking families and small businesses. When Obama and Pelosi rammed the 2,700-page bill through Congress, they went to great lengths to assure the American people that Obamacare was 'absolutely not a tax increase.'

"Last November, Ohioans in all 88 counties rejected the government takeover of health care, sending a clear message that voters in the Buckeye state will not stand for the President's overreaching attack on our health care system.

"This election, Ohioans have a chance to stand up once and for all against Obamacare. We have an opportunity to send Governor Mitt Romney and a Republican majority to Washington to repeal this tax. Once there, Republicans will remain committed to replacing it with comprehensive solutions that address access to care and true cost reform."
