STATEHOUSE—Please include the following statement from House Speaker Brian C. Bosma (R-Indianapolis) in your coverage of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act released today:
“This is certainly not the direction I had hoped the Supreme Court would take on this most critical issue. Most Americans, and an overwhelming majority of Hoosiers, do not support this overreaching, overwhelming federally mandated approach to the nation’s healthcare challenges.
“To say that it will have a negative impact on Indiana small businesses, Hoosier families and our state’s currently exceptional fiscal position may qualify as the understatement of the year.
“While we cannot accurately estimate the fiscal impact on Indiana today, it is clear that Washington D.C. is completely out of touch with Hoosiers. Indiana will now be placed in the position of helping to foot the bill for burdensome D.C. mandates that our citizens oppose.”
