Washington, D.C. – Associated Builders and Contractors today issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
“We are deeply disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the so-called Affordable Care Act,” said 2012 ABC national chairman Eric Regelin, president of Granix, LLC, Ellicott City, Md. “Under this law, employers have seen insurance premiums increase; have had their plans discontinued, forcing some to purchase more expensive policies; or have had to drop their coverage altogether.
“True health care reform must include practical, common-sense solutions, such as allowing Americans to buy insurance across state lines, offering small business health plans, expanding access to health savings accounts, and making benefits portable in order to reflect the unique nature of the construction industry workforce,” Regelin said.
“We urge Congress to repeal the health care law, which has only served to hurt employers and increase premiums for millions of Americans,” said Regelin.
