Camp Statement on Supreme Court Decision

June 28, 2012

Washington, DC – Today, Ways and Means Committee Chairman Dave Camp (R-MI) issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling on the constitutionality of the Democrats’ health care law:

“While I respect the ruling of the Court, they have granted the federal government unlimited power to intrude on the private lives of American citizens.  I do not believe our Founding Fathers would have ever contemplated a federal government with this much power.  This is a dangerous day for the future of civil liberties and the principle of limited government this country was founded on.  This ruling ensures that Americans will now face an untenable choice of either paying a massive tax or higher insurance premiums.  I will continue to fight to repeal the entire law and craft commonsense solutions that address the most critical challenge facing families and job creators – the high cost of health care.”
