Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton released the following statement regarding oral arguments heard before the United States Supreme Court today in King v. Burwell:

“Obamacare has been fundamentally flawed from the very beginning, causing millions to lose their health plans and increasing costs for patients, doctors and businesses. This case focuses on the Obama Administration’s deliberate actions in direct contradiction to the law, implementing Obamacare as they please and ignoring the statute as written. I lend my unwavering support to the states of Oklahoma, Alabama, Georgia, Nebraska, South Carolina and West Virginia in their legal challenge to Obamacare, which could limit the applicability of the individual and employer mandates forced on Texans. I am hopeful that this lawsuit will ultimately free Texans from the bureaucratic burdens of this unjust, unaffordable and failing law.”
