    Inhofe Statement Halbig v. Burwell Decision

    WASHINGTON, D.C. - U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe (R-Okla.) today responded to the decision of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit to uphold the challenge in Halbig v. Burwell. The court ruled that government subsidies given to 4.7 million people by the Obama Administration to purchase insurance on the federally-run Healthcare.gov were not legal under the Affordable Care Act. 

    “Today’s decision in the D.C. Circuit Court is only one of many rulings demonstrating the problems that plague Obamacare,” said Inhofe. “President Obama sold his signature legislation on the merit it would make healthcare affordable. The Administration has been breaking the President’s own law in order to give the appearance of a promise kept, but as we’ve seen with the number of people losing their preferred healthcare plans and doctors as well as the skyrocketing costs, ObamaCare has only been a promise broken. Today’s decision is similar to litigation that Oklahoma’s Attorney Scott Pruitt filed in 2011 challenging Obamacare’s overreach into 34 states that have refused to set up exchanges. Courts are beginning to agree that Obamacare is riddled with problems and that the current Administration is deliberately ignoring it’s own flawed law. It’s time we repeal and replace ObamaCare with common-sense solutions that truly makes healthcare choices accessible and affordable for Americans.”
