Congressman Gardner statement on SCOTUS healthcare decision

WASHINGTON D.C. – Congressman Cory Gardner (R-CO) released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling on the President’s healthcare law:

“Today's decision is very disappointing. The Supreme Court effectively granted Congress unprecedented power to tax people who don’t spend money and buy what Congress wants them to buy. But just because something is deemed constitutional does not make it good policy. Our fight to curb the overreaching power of government will continue. While today's decision may have been a setback, the vision of our Founding Fathers and their notion of limited government still lives in the hearts and minds of many Americans. This ruling only energizes us for November."
