Rutledge Comments on U.S. Supreme Court King v. Burwell Decision

Little Rock – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge today released a statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell. The Supreme Court upheld a provision of the Affordable Care Act, affirming that 6.4 million people can continue to receive subsidies that allow them to purchase health care plans. “Today’s ruling is disappointing because the Supreme Court failed to read the plain text of the law and instead ruled to allow the Obama Administration to further implement a preferred policy and rewrite the law instead of what the law actually states – a practice that has become all too common from this Administration. The Court’s decision threatens the foundation upon which this country was built – that only Congress has the power to write and enact laws. As Attorney General, I will continue to fight to defend the rule of law and to protect Arkansans.”
