CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey released the following statement on Thursday’s ruling by the Supreme Court regarding Obamacare.
“We are deeply disappointed that the court ducked the question about the unconstitutionality of the individual mandate. This case was always about: one, ensuring that individuals could not be coerced into purchasing health insurance against their will; and, two, making the insurance system far more affordable for hard-working Americans. Too many West Virginians have suffered from skyrocketing premiums and need better, more affordable health care options. We will keep fighting for affordable coverage and against coercive, individual mandates that represent the opposite of freedom.”
