WMC Reacts to U.S. Supreme Court Ruling on Health Care Law

MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce President/CEO Kurt R. Bauer said Thursday that the U.S. Supreme Court decision to uphold Obama’s health care law is disappointing and will hurt businesses of all sizes.

“The fact that a divided court upheld the constitutionality of the health care law does not make it good public policy,” Bauer said. “As Chief Justice Roberts noted in his decision, Congress, not the Supreme Court, made the policy choices under the Constitution and hopefully lawmakers will have the good sense to repeal this misguided law.”

“The so-called Affordable Health Care Act will actually drive up the cost of health care, and in the absence of massive tax increases is likely to bankrupt the federal government.

The uncertainty that businesses of all sizes feel continues with today’s decision and will be a drag on economic growth.”
