Senator Scott Reacts to Supreme Court’s King v. Burwell Decision

Charleston, SC – U.S. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) released the statement below following the United States Supreme Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell.

“I strongly disagree with how the Supreme Court has ruled today in King v. Burwell,” Scott said. “Unfortunately for the American people, the court’s decision means we won’t see a stop to rising premiums, skyrocketing deductibles and the many failures of Obamacare hurting families across the country. We recently learned that more than a hundred thousand South Carolinians will see premium increases of up to 33 percent next year, and I fear that is only the beginning.”

Scott continued, “I will continue working to return our health care system to doctors and their patients instead of leaving it in the hands of government bureaucrats. This includes working towards the repeal and replacement of Obamacare, as well as the passage of the bipartisan PACE Act, which I introduced to protect small and mid-sized businesses and their employees from significant premium increases.”
