Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman says it's more important than ever that Mitt Romney be elected President.
During a news conference in Lincoln on Thursday Heineman said "Obamacare will continue to dramatically increase the cost of health care."
"There are many ways to achieve affordable patient-centered health care without the unaffordable, unsustainable, regulatory nightmare of Obamacare," Heineman said.
As examples Heineman said there needs to be an efficient electronic medical system that reduces costs rather than an inefficient paper-based system He also said the prices of routine medical operations should be posted on the Internet so that citizens can make more informed decisions.
"The ramifications of today’s multifaceted Supreme Court ruling are very intricate and deeply complex. Reviewing this decision in a detailed, thoughtful and responsible manner will likely take weeks and months before a complete determination can be made on what this ruling means for Nebraska."
The ruling means the unfunded Medicaid expansion is now an option for states.
Most in Nebraska's congressional delegation derided the ruling. Only U.S. Senator Ben Nelson laudedthe opinion, saying it "ushers in a new era of affordable and accessible health care for all Americans.''
Senator Mike Johanns refrained from criticizing the high court but called on Congress to redouble efforts to repeal the law.
Congressmen Lee Terry and Adrian Smith say they are disappointed in the decision. Congressman Jeff Fortenberry said Americans will decide at the polls whether they want the health care overhaul.
