Press Release

(Washington, DC) – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) issued the following statement after the Supreme Court issued a decision in the Burwell v. Hobby Lobby case.

“Religious liberty is a precious constitutional freedom,” Congressman Joe Wilson said. “Today’s Supreme Court decision protects this right from the Administration’s deliberate attempts to restrict it. Businesses should always possess the authority to exercise its beliefs without fear from the government.

“President Obama and his Administration continue to expand the size of government, so much so that it is trampling upon our freedoms.  Obamacare continues to hurt families and denies American families the ability to make their own healthcare decisions. Evidence proves with the VA scandal’s waiting lists, delay of services, and possible preventable deaths that big government does not work.  The only way forward is to repeal and replace Obamacare with a common sense, patient-centered solution.”
