WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Congressman John Katko (NY-24) today issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s ruling in King v. Burwell:
“While today’s Supreme Court decision supports the President’s healthcare law, it does not change the fact that there is an urgent need to act. This law has not lived up to its promises – costs have risen, coverage has been terminated or interrupted, and Medicare was cut. Central New York’s healthcare marketplace still requires real reforms that expand options, lower costs, and protect the doctor-patient relationship – and my colleagues and I in the House stand ready to work on bipartisan solutions to improve our nation’s healthcare system. We will only get there if the President and members of both parties come together and admit that the healthcare law needs structural reforms or replacement.”
Congressman John Katko represents the 24th Congressional District, which includes all of Onondaga, Cayuga, and Wayne Counties and a portion of Oswego County. For more information, please visit https://katko.house.gov or www.facebook.com/RepJohnKatko.
