The Supreme Court has apparently upheld the controversial individual mandate component of the Affordable Healthcare Act, according to multiple reports Thursday morning.
Congressional candidate and Rye Town supervisor Joe Carvin issued a press release with his reaction to the decision:
"Today's Supreme Court decision is deeply disappointing, but it serves to highlight two critical facts: Obamacare represents the largest tax increase in U.S. history, and it must be struck down legislatively by the Congress rather than through the courts.
Obamacare is unaffordable to a nation on a perilous path toward effective bankruptcy. As a member of Congress, I will work to overturn this fundamentally flawed law."
Carvin's brother Michael Carvin argued against the constitutionality of the law in front of the Supreme Court.
