Manufacturers: Now Is the Time To Direct Attention to Needed Reforms

Washington, D.C., June 25, 2015 – The National Association of Manufacturers Vice President of Human Resources Policy Joe Trauger issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court decision on King v. Burwell:

“Manufacturers urge Congress and the Obama Administration to focus attention on measures that will lower costs, increase coverage options and provide better information to consumers and employers trying to determine which coverage best suits their needs. The Supreme Court has ruled on two key challenges to the Affordable Care Act, and it is time to direct attention to needed reforms of the law, such as eliminating the medical device, employee benefits and health insurance taxes, repealing the Independent Payment Advisory Board and loosening the grip of employer mandates that only serve to drive up the cost of coverage.”
