Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) sued the Supreme Court Thursday on Fox News for refusing to contest Obamacare. The Republican said he was “not surprised” by the “dubious” decision to uphold Obamacare, as the Supreme Court had previously suggested it was his decision.
Hawley responds to Supreme Court ruling
“I’m not surprised by the decision today,” said Hawley. “The court wired that they would probably take this route. What happened today was that the court ruled that there is no lawsuit, that the states that sued have no lawsuit. “
“You know, I think this is probably a dubious decision. I mean, as Judge Alito noted, the court has allowed the court many, many other times in cases like this, ”he added. “So I think that this distinction is probably unfounded, but I cannot say that this result surprised me.”
Hawley was then asked by host Dana Perino what was next for the GOP after the verdict.

“What we need to do is make sure that health care is actually more affordable for people and covers people with pre-existing conditions, but at the same time gives people more choice in health plans and the cost of health care is down, and we’ve seen this it is absolutely imperative, ”Hawley continued.
“Health care costs are far too expensive; they continue to rise along with inflation and the rest of the economy, ”he concluded. “So right now the focus has to be on cutting costs, giving more and more Americans choice while protecting those with pre-existing conditions, and we can do all of those things, Dana.”
