Candidates Discuss the Affordable Healthcare Act
Chris Collins voiced his displeasure with the Affordable Healthcare Act during a campaign stop in Rochester.
Collins, the GOP candidate for the 27th Congressional District, believes the controversial healthcare legislation will hurt the economy by preventing job growth.
"With Obamacare, what you’re going to see is an economy that is still going to be stagnant, you’re not going to see jobs create. The private sector has spoken; they want less government, we need to get our spending under control. We cannot continue to four billion dollars a day in deficits and think that’s okay, it’s not," said Chris Collins.
He is set to face off against incumbent Democrat Kathy Hochul in November.
Hochul released a statement earlier regarding the Supreme Court's ruling that says:
“I am hopeful that Thursday's ruling will help to focus our country on the need for more effective policies that drive down the cost of care and ensure that all Americans
have access to quality and affordable health care. I stand ready to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to continue to improve the law and find appropriate solutions to the rising cost of health care in this country.”
