Congresswoman Barbara Lee's Statement on the Supreme Court Ruling on the Affordable Care Act

Written by  Congresswoman Barbara Lee

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D-CA) released the following statement today after the Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act constitutional:

 

 “The decision today is a victory for the American people and the health and future of our nation.  With this ruling, the Supreme Court confirmed that the reforms in the Affordable Care Act will move forward and provide millions of Americans with the fundamental human right of health care.

“The Affordable Care Act will now take its rightful place with Social Security and Medicare as powerful examples of what this country can do to improve the lives of every American.

“As the chair of the Congressional Black Caucus when Congress crafted the Affordable Health Care Act, I am particularly pleased that our work to ensure the strongest possible health care law and provisions to reduce and eliminate health care disparities will move forward.

“Now we can and must stand prepared to fight back any Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and deny health care and patient protections to millions of Americans.  We cannot turn back now but build upon this victory and continue our march toward affordable, quality health care for all.”
