JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Congressman Rick Crawford stopped in Region 8 to discuss the Supreme Court's recent to decision to uphold parts of President Obama's Health Care Law.
Crawford spoke with Region 8 residents at EC Barton and Company this afternoon. Crawford is visiting with people across the state to listen to their concerns, answer questions, and get their opinions on the matter.
He says the Supreme Court is recognizing this law as the largest tax increase in the history of middle class working families. Crawford believes that will cause more people to cross party lines to help repeal the health care law. "I think more democrats will get on board with this repeal simply because it is a tax issue."
Crawford says he respects the courts opinion, but doesn't necessarily agree with it. "What they said was not endorsement of this law. What they said was this an opinion in regards to the constitutionality of the law."
