Binghamton, NY – Dan Lamb today released the following statement after the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act.
“The hot rhetoric and politics surrounding this issue must give way to a rational, consensus building discussion. Like many laws, the Affordable Care Act can be improved. We’ve got to do more to get medical costs under control, while protecting the doctor-patient relationship. We have to bring doctors, hospitals, insurance companies, small businesses, middle-class families and all other stakeholders into the discussion.
“If elected, I won’t be focused on scoring political points by putting the healthcare of millions of Americans on the chopping block. Instead, I’ll seek to work across party lines to make sensible improvements to the law. Richard Hanna’s support for repealing health care makes for great partisan rhetoric, but doing so would take us backwards. It’s the worst possible approach to addressing a very complex issue.”
