Republican U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock of Peoria is looking forward to the U. S. Supreme Court declaring the so-called “ObamaCare” unconstitutional. “Over 60 percent of Americans want (the Affordable Care Act) fully repealed,” he said. “So I think both from a constitutionality standpoint as well as from a, just, popular support, it makes sense to scrap the bill, to start over, and to put patients at the center of the health care debate. This really dealt with coverage, it didn’t deal with costs. You can’t fix health care unless you do a better job controlling costs, and the best way to do that is to put patients in charge of their health care dollars.”

Schock was in Springfield just after Gov. Pat Quinn signed the Medicaid “rescue” legislation, which the Congressman praises: “We provide health care beyond that which is required by federal law and, quite frankly, that most other states do,” said Schock. “Our health care program here, Medicaid, provides services 40 percent greater than the national average.”
