Texas Lawmakers, Governor React to Supreme Court Ruling

Shortly after the Supreme Court came down with its ruling, Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison released this statement: "The Supreme Court has declared the healthcare law constitutional, but that doesn't make it good policy...  The court's ruling confirms the President's health care law is nothing more than a massive tax on the American people."

 Texas Senator John Cornyn said in a statement, "The Supreme Court made clear today that the American people will be the ultimate judge of Obamacare.  As republicans, we will redouble our efforts to repeal this job-killing law."

And from another strong opponent of Obamacare, Texas Governor Rick Perry on this morning's ruling: "This ruling will be a stomach punch to the American economy. It is a shocking disappointment to freedom-loving Americans desperate to get our country back on track. Obamacare is bad for the economy, bad for health care, bad for freedom. Americans have made clear their overwhelming opposition to its convoluted, burdensome and overreaching mandates."
