N.C.‘s Sen. Richard Burr releases statement on Supreme Court’s health-care ruling

Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision on the president’s health care law:

“The Court has now fulfilled its obligation as final arbiter of the constitutionality of the President’s health care law, and I thank them for their service. While the Court has been reviewing this law for months, American families and businesses have been reviewing it for years, and they have rendered their verdict as well. People on both sides of the health care debate will spend the days and weeks to come discussing the impact of today’s ruling, but a few things remain clear: our health care system is broken, costs remain unchecked, and outcomes are not improving. I remain committed to addressing these concerns and fulfilling our obligation to the American people to lower health care costs, expand coverage and choice, and build on the innovation that sets America apart from the rest of the world.”

    So Burr supports extending Medicare to all, doing away with for-profit health insurance companies, which increase costs for consumers while diminishing outcomes?

    If there is some other way to actually “lower health care costs, expand coverage and choice…”?

    If so, no one has offered up what it could be; the pathetic ‘let consumers cross state lines’ nonsense has no traction, so what is the plan, Senator?

    Not much difference between this statement and Shuler’s vague words.
