Rep. Ryan: Roberts had to ‘contort logic and reason’ to reach ruling

In an interview on ABC's "This Week," Ryan said he was "very disappointed" in the ruling.

"I think the chief justice had to contort logic and reason to come up with this ruling," Ryan said. "So one man decided against the dissenting opinion, against what I... thought were his principles and judicial jurisprudence, he decided to leave this up to the American people. So, now the stakes of this election could not be higher."

But Ryan, like other Republicans on Sunday, vowed to repeal the law.

"We're not deterred," he said. "We think we can still repeal this law if we win this election. The American people will be the judge and jury on this law come November."

House Republicans are expected to vote July 11 on a measure to repeal the healthcare law in full.
