The Supreme Court decision upholding the Affordable Care Act is bad for business, says the head of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
Glenn Hamer, president and CEO of the Phoenix-based business organization, says that is the reason so many business organizations, including his own, lobbied against the bill before it became law.
"There's a very serious concern about what the bill will do in terms of the cost of health care as well as the quality and accessibility of health care," Hamer says.
"We certainly haven't seen any kinds of declines in costs," Hamer says. "Even the Arizona Chamber of Commerce and Industry -- we're a small business. I know that our premiums have gone up. So health care has not become more affordable since this law went into effect."
He says the chamber will take a close look at the Supreme Court's decision before deciding what action it might take to work for repeal of some or all of the law.
