WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision on King v. Burwell:

"Today the Supreme Court failed to recognize how terribly flawed President Obama's health care law is for millions of Georgians suffering under the law’s health insurance premium spikes and intrusive mandates. Despite this action by the Supreme Court I will continue to work with my Senate colleagues to repeal and replace Obamacare."

Background:

Since voting against its enactment in 2009, Isakson has voted to defund or repeal Obamacare more than 60 times. Isakson has co-sponsored numerous legislative proposals that would repeal the law in full or repeal provisions in the law in previous sessions of Congress, including both the Obamacare Repeal Act, and the Defund Obamacare Act. On February 2, 2011, he voted to repeal the health care law altogether, and on March 13, 2013, he voted in favor of Cruz’s amendment to defund Obamacare in the Continuing Resolution.
