Pro Tem Bingman statement on Supreme Court ruling upholding ObamaCare

Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman, R-Sapulpa, released the statement below following the Supreme Court announcement on the president's health care law:
“The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the president’s health care law is not only disappointing—but frankly, it makes no sense. Oklahomans simply do not believe it is constitutional for the government to force individuals to purchase a private product, period. What Oklahomans want is conservative, common-sense health care reform to lower the cost of care using free-market principles. They want to protect the doctor-patient relationship and make sure we have access to the care we need. Worse yet, the president’s health care law will continue undermining this fragile Obama economy by driving up health care costs and squeezing the job creators in Oklahoma and around the country. We must turn our focus toward November and elect leaders who will repeal and replace ObamaCare.”
