WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Congressman Mark Amodei (NV-2) today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's decision to take up the challenges to the President's health care legislation:

"I believe that the individual mandate is unconstitutional and it is my hope that the Supreme Court will overturn it. Already, during my short time in Congress, I voted to repeal a provision of the President's health care law that raised eligibility for Medicaid far beyond the intended poverty level. This correction is estimated to save taxpayers at least $13 billion over 10 years. I eagerly await the Court's decision and from there we'll be able to assess the path for repealing what amounts to government control of 16% of our economy."
