RNC On Obamacare Ruling: Only A GOP President Can Fix Health Care Now

The Republican National Committee said Thursday that the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold nationwide tax subsidies under Obamacare shows the need to elect a GOP president.

“Today’s ruling makes it clear that if we want to fix our broken healthcare system, then we will need to elect a Republican president with proven ideas and real solutions that will help American families,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said in a statement.

The RNC chairman then seized on the ruling to ding Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton supports big government mandates and expanding the government’s reach into our healthcare system, maneuvers that have made our healthcare system worse off,” Priebus said in the statement. “What you will not hear from Democrats today is any information on how to make healthcare more affordable at a time when premiums are getting more expensive.”
