Governor Jindal issued the following statement in response to today’s D.C. U.S. Court of Appeals ruling in Halbig V. Burwell:
“Today’s ruling is more proof that Obamacare is falling apart at the seams. This should come as no surprise. President Obama and his liberal allies rammed Obamacare through Congress without any care for following the Constitution and the laws of this country. Worse, the Obama administration continues to change the rules and make them up as they go in an effort to force Obamacare on the American people.
“More federal regulations and lawless executive orders are not the way to improve health care in this country. Obamacare needs to be fully repealed and replaced with a system that empowers patients and providers, and that gives states greater ability to decide how best to reduce health care costs.”
