Scott Reacts to Ruling Against Obamacare Law

Washington - U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) issued the following statement after a federal district judge ruled inHouse v. Burwellthat the Obama administration unlawfully funded parts of Obamacare without an appropriation from Congress:

"Today's ruling by a federal district judge that the Obama Administration was improperly spending taxpayer dollars to pay for subsidies related to Obamacare is positive news in our fight to stop this disastrous law. The case, brought by Republicans in the House of Representatives, shows two important things. First, when you pass a bill to figure out what's in it - you end up with a bad bill, and second, we are seeing one more step in Obamacare failing the American people.

From my PACE Act, which was recently signed into law, and prevents a harmful expansion of Obamacare, to rising premiums and deductibles for hard working American families, to failing co-ops and state exchanges across the country, it is clear that the Unaffordable Care Act is collapsing under its own weight.

I will continue working to repeal Obamacare and to instead bring free-market solutions to the forefront so that our health care system works for the American people, not a massive federal bureaucracy in Washington."
