WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Frank Lucas (OK-03) today released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court’s King v. Burwell ruling to uphold Obamacare’s federal subsidies for state-run health exchanges.

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling doesn’t change the reality that Obamacare has failed to live up to most of its promises – premiums have risen and care choices are even more limited,” said Congressman Lucas.

“The president may be content with Obamacare narrowly surviving legitimate legal questions and the public’s concerns. However, I continue to believe it’s time to repeal this mess and replace it with a patient-centered system that doesn’t assume one size fits all when it comes to you and your family’s health care decisions.”
