Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA-07) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the President’s health care law:

"Though I have great respect for the Supreme Court and will always defend its place as a co-equal branch of our government, I am shocked by the decision of the Court today.  I will continue to dig deep into the reasoning of the court, but my first understanding is that with this ruling, the Supreme Court has determined that the U.S. Constitution grants Congress unlimited authority to control the lives of American citizens.  This is a tremendous blow to freedom as I understand freedom.  We can’t put the flawed reasoning of the Court back in the bottle, but we can continue to try to repeal the President’s health care bill and all of the troubling mandates that it contains, and I am committed to doing so."
