WASHINGTON, June 28, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hispanic Leadership Network Executive Director Jennifer Korn released the following statement today in reaction to the Supreme Court's ruling regarding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.
"Today's Supreme Court ruling hurts Hispanics and all Americans especially hard during one of the worst economic times in our country. In its opinion, the Court shed light on the truth - that Obamacare is, in fact, a one trillion dollar tax-hike imposed on the American people.
"A federal mandate is not what the American people need or want to improve our health care system. Simply because something is deemed constitutional, it doesn't mean it is good policy.
"This law endangers quality private coverage for families, while robbing $500 billion from seniors to help pay for it. As it stands, this law puts the financial security of countless Hispanic families at risk and irresponsibly places the burden of debt on our children and grandchildren - jeopardizing the American dream.
"We call on Congress to work in a bipartisan manner to replace key provisions of Obamacare with reforms that truly increase access to quality and affordable healthcare while protecting future generations from a mountain of debt."
