Statement by Grant Starrett on King v. Burwell decision

I am disgusted that the Supreme Court has continued its tortured analysis of the Frankenstein law known as ObamaCare. 

This goes to show the importance of vetting and getting the right judges, especially when Republicans appoint them. Unfortunately, Chief Justice Roberts, who pledged to merely be an umpire, has shown that his strike zone varies considerably based on the issue before the court. He himself concedes that the court rejects the "most natural reading" of ObamaCare in order to uphold a law that is unaffordable - both for the government supervising it, and the people regulated by it. This ruling also goes to show the importance of electing the right people to repeal ObamaCare entirely and reorient our healthcare system toward a free market alternative. 

We recently learned that under ObamaCare, individual plans in Tennessee could see drastic premium increases next year. Tennesseans need an alternative to this unaffordable law, and they need someone in Washington who will fight for that alternative. 

In short, we need people who will actually do what they say they're going to do - on the bench, and in Congress.
