Attorney General Sam Olens today released the following statement on the Supreme Court of the United States’ ruling in King v. Burwell:
“I am deeply disappointed by today’s Supreme Court ruling in the King v. Burwell case. By permitting President Obama to ignore and rewrite important provisions of the Affordable Care Act, the Supreme Court has threatened our constitutional structure, which has always been understood to give Congress—and only Congress—the power to enact and amend the laws of our nation. Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a loss for everyone who cares about the Constitution and the rule of law.
“For my part, I’ll continue to fight for our Constitution, the rule of law, and for the Georgians hurt by President Obama’s failed domestic policies.”
