MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley says he is "deeply disappointed" with the U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding much of the federal health care legislation.

Bentley issued a statement shortly after the Supreme Court's health care ruling was announced saying that the health care act created more regulation and bureaucracy.

Bentley calls the health care act the worst legislation to come out of Congress. He says the legislation must be repealed.

Bentley, a physician, issued a statement with his reaction within minutes after the ruling was released.

Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange also issued a statement saying he disagrees with the court's ruling. He says the ruling will be costly to states that will now have to pay for the mandates to the health care act.
