U.S. Sen. Mark Warner issued the following response Thursday to the U.S. Supreme Court 5-4 decision to uphold President Barack Obama's Affordable Care Act:
“I am pleased the Supreme Court has upheld the constitutionality of health reform.
“I have always felt the Affordable Care Act was weighted more toward the issue of coverage and not enough toward cost containment.
“I look forward to now moving forward in a bipartisan way on how we can further bring down the costs of health care. We must focus the health care system more on outcomes than simply on the volume of services provided.”
