Senator David Perdue: Obamacare Ruling Is A Resounding Victory For Our Constitution

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) released the following statement after U.S. District Court Judge Rosemary M. Collyer ruled that the Obama Administration has been improperly funding an Obamacare program:  

“This ruling is a resounding victory for our Constitution. The Founding Fathers purposefully created three separate branches of government with three clear roles, and for too long, we have seen President Obama overstep his authority and insert Washington into every aspect of our lives. President Obama’s time in office is coming to an end and rulings like this signal that many of President Obama’s overreaching policies could soon be coming to an end too.”

In February, Senator Perdue and Senator John McCain (R-AZ) introduced the Empowering Patients First Act, legislation that was originally introduced in the House of Representatives by Congressman Tom Price (R-GA-06), to fully repeal and replace Obamacare with common-sense solutions that put patients back in charge of their health care decisions.
