NRF Assails Health Care Decision
The National Retail Federation last week issued a statement disagreeing with the decision by the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday to uphold the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
“As the voice of retailers of all types and sizes, we’re disappointed by today’s ruling. The Court missed an opportunity to redress the many shortcomings of the law," NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay said in a statement.
“As it stands, the law wrongly focuses more on penalizing employers and the private sector than reducing health costs. For these reasons, NRF has been a consistent skeptic of the Affordable Care Act.
