A statement by Representative Todd Akins (r), at his House of Representatives web site:

Akin Statement on SCOTUS Decision Regarding Obamacare

Washington, DC – Congressman Todd Akin (R-MO) released the following statement regarding today’s decision by the United States Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act.

“Since its inception I have fought against the adoption of Obamacare and I applaud the innumerable citizens who have stood for freedom, common sense and the right to life in opposition to this dangerous piece of socialist engineering.

“Today’s ruling does not end the need for continued opposition to this offensive overreach into the most private aspect of Americans’ lives.  With this decision, I, my conservative colleagues and a substantial majority of Americans will redouble our campaign to defund and repeal all of Obamacare.

“…I applaud the innumerable citizens who have stood for freedom, common sense and the right to life in opposition to this dangerous piece of socialist engineering…” [emphasis added]

“…Today’s ruling does not end the need for continued opposition to this offensive overreach into the most private aspect of Americans’ lives…” [emphasis added]

Because, of course, the reproductive decisions of any American is definitely public business.

Seriously, we lose to these people?
