U.S. Chamber Will Continue Efforts to Improve the Health Care System
‘Legislative Changes and Genuine Reforms Now Urgently Needed,’ Says Donohue
WASHINGTON, D.C.—U.S. Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Thomas J. Donohue released the following statement today after the U.S. Supreme Court issued its ruling upholding the health care law.
“While we respect the Court's decision, today’s Supreme Court ruling does not change the reality that the health care law is fundamentally flawed. Left unchanged, it will cost many Americans their employer-based health insurance, undermine job creation, and raise health care costs for all.
“It is imperative that policymakers and the business community now work together to develop and support genuine reforms that control costs, improve access, ensure quality, and promote wellness. These reforms and goals are achievable. The Chamber and the American business community are ready to go to work to enact true health care reform. Given the Court's decision, the need for action has never been greater.”
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
