Gov.-elect Dan Malloy is no fan of a federal judge’s ruling that says the mandate for individuals to carry health insurance is unconstitutional.

“I disagree with, and am disappointed by, the ruling of a Virginia federal judge deeming the individual coverage portion of the national healthcare law to be unconstitutional. But this decision underscores the need to get things right here in Connecticut,” Malloy said.

“The rising cost of healthcare is a major detriment to job creation here in Connecticut, and we need to make healthcare more affordable and more accessible. With Lieutenant Governor-Elect Wyman – someone who has led the way on the preparation for SustiNet, as well as its implementation, I will resolve open SustiNet issues with all parties at the table,” he said.
