Oklahoma Attorney General Pruitt: SCOTUS Decision 'Disturbing'

Thursday, 28 Jun 2012 10:35 AM

“We’re disappointed the Court upheld the individual mandate, and find it disturbing that they did not place a limit on the power of the federal government to control the lives of Americans. But, the battle isn’t over. It is now up to the political process to repeal the act and replace it with measures that address the health care crisis within the confines of the Constitution. We must continue to oppose this act and multiple overreaching regulations proposed by the Obama Administration that cross the line of federal power,” Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt said in a statement.

General Pruitt attended today’s court session at the U.S. Supreme Court. He was in Washington D.C. Thursday to testify before a Congressional subcommittee.

Oklahoma filed a lawsuit against the health care act in January 2011 and filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court case. Virginia and Florida also filed lawsuits, challenging the act. Twenty-five other states joined the Florida lawsuit.
