Attorney General Ken Paxton tonight issued the following statement after a U.S. District Court today issued a final judgment and granted a stay of his ruling declaring Obamacare unconstitutional as it goes through the appeals process:

"We are eager to defend the district court's ruling declaring Obamacare unconstitutional.  We have no quarrel with the district court’s stay, which provides the states with an opportunity to develop plans to address the health care needs of their residents for the day this ruling is ultimately upheld."
