"The Supreme Court's decision to uphold ObamaCare is a crushing blow to patients throughout the country," House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) said in a statement. "During the week of July 9th, the House will once again repeal ObamaCare, clearing the way for patient-centered reforms that lower costs and increase choice."
