U.S. Chamber Questions Impact of Court Healthcare DecisionJune 28, 2012 By: Newswire Travel Agent
Employer-based health insurance may be at risk, according to U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue who released a statement today after the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling upholding the health care law.
“While we respect the Court's decision, today’s Supreme Court ruling does not change the reality that the health care law is fundamentally flawed. Left unchanged, it will cost many Americans their employer-based health insurance, undermine job creation, and raise health care costs for all.
“It is imperative that policymakers and the business community now work together to develop and support genuine reforms that control costs, improve access, ensure quality, and promote wellness. These reforms and goals are achievable. The Chamber and the American business community are ready to go to work to enact true health care reform. Given the Court's decision, the need for action has never been greater,” Donohue said.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors and regions.
