U.S. Congressman Mac Thornberry (R-Clarendon) made the following comments today after the Supreme Court announced its decision on the health care law: 

“Today’s Supreme Court decision is deeply disappointing for the rule of law in this country. The Court has now twice rewritten sections of the Affordable Care Act to reflect what it thinks Congress meant to do. This decision is judges making law, and that is not the way our system is set up. 

"The Affordable Care Act has proven to be anything but affordable for the people who are seeing their insurance premiums rise. The House has voted more than 50 times to repeal, dismantle, or stop funding this disastrous law. We have real problems in our health care system, and there are more limited, commonsense solutions to help solve those problems.”
