The Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act as fully constitutional.
Today’s Supreme Court ruling moves our nation forward by saving lives and promising every single American a better future. It is a resounding victory for working people and for the more than 100 million Americans of all political parties, ages, incomes and occupations who are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act.
Today, the court rejected the cynical approach of corporations and Republican extremists who consistently have put profits and politics ahead of working people and whose cold and bitter vision for America is simply that “we are all on our own.”
The decision today is vitally important for working people trapped in the toughest economic crisis in a generation.
Today, the Supreme Court made a decision that now is not the time to slow down the benefits of the law that is making healthcare more affordable. Now is the time to keep our great nation moving forward.
