GOP Sen. Hawley Slams Supreme Court For ‘Dubious’ Decision To Reject Obamacare Challenge – ‘Not Surprised’

Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) went on Fox News on Thursday to slam the Supreme Court for rejecting a challenge to Obamacare. The Republican said that he is “not surprised” by the “dubious” decision to uphold Obamacare because the Supreme Court had suggested this would be its decision beforehand.

Hawley Responds To Supreme Court Ruling

“I’m not surprised at the decision today,” Hawley said. “The court has telegraphed that they were likely to head down this route. What happened today was the court decided there wasn’t standing, that the states that sued didn’t have standing.”

“You know, I think that’s probably a dubious decision. I mean, the court — as Justice Alito points out in dissent — the court has allowed standing in cases like this many, many other times,” he added. “So, I think that distinction is probably not a well-founded one, but I can’t say I’m surprised by this result.”

Hawley was then asked by host Dana Perino what is next for the GOP following the ruling.

Hawley Doubles Down

“What we’ve got to do is we’ve got to make sure health care actually can be more affordable to folks and cover people with pre-existing conditions but at the same time allow people more choices in health care plans, get the cost of health care down, and we’ve seen that’s the absolute pressing need,” Hawley continued.

“Health care costs are way too expensive; they continue to go up along with inflation and the rest of the economy,” he concluded. “So right now, the focus needs to be on getting costs down, on making choice available to more and more Americans while we protect those with pre-existing conditions, and we can do all those things, Dana.”

Obama Celebrates Supreme Court Ruling

This comes after Barack Obama spoke out to celebrate the Supreme Court’s ruling.

“Today, the Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. Again. This ruling reaffirms what we have long known to be true: the Affordable Care Act is here to stay,” Obama tweeted.

“The principle of universal coverage has been established, and 31 million people now have access to care through the law we passed—with millions more who can no longer be denied coverage or charged more because of a preexisting condition,” he added.
