Supreme Court Rules Congress Can Tax; Also Repeal Tax

WASHINGTON, June 28 -- Rep. Elton W. Gallegly, R-Calif. (24th CD), issued the following news release:

U.S. Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-CA) released the following statement today after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld President Obama's health care tax on the American people.

"By ruling that the individual mandate is a tax and that the president and Congress have the right to tax, the U.S. Supreme Court exposed President Obama and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi's predisposition to tax the American people to pay for big government programs that kill jobs and place unreasonable burdens on all Americans.

"But just as Congress can tax, it can repeal taxes. A recent Reuters poll found that 56 percent of respondents oppose Obamacare and 61 percent oppose the individual mandate tax. I will continue to work with my colleagues to rescind Obamacare and its burdensome taxes and regulations. Then Congress can take a strong look at the health insurance system and our overall health care system, analyze where it can be made more efficient and responsive to patients and health care professionals, and take the steps necessary to make it more accessible and affordable for all Americans without big government taxes."
