Rep. Phil Gingrey, R- Marietta, an outspoken critic of the healthcare law that was signed by President Obama released the following statement on Monday:

“I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision to review President Obama’s disastrous healthcare law. This is a step in the right direction towards striking down one of the costliest, most detrimental pieces of legislation in American history. With more than 2,000 pages of job-killing regulations, Obamacare has already cost American businesses billions of dollars. Without repeal, the healthcare law will only continue to stifle our nation’s economic recovery.”
