Congressman Gallego on King v. Burwell Decision
Washington, DC – Today the United States Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act. Congressman Gallego released the following statement:
“Republicans have been fighting the Affordable Care Act from day one and today for the second time the Supreme Court upheld the law and sided with millions of American families who thanks to the ACA have quality, affordable care. This decision ensures that no matter what state you live in, you have access to premium tax credits to afford dependable and quality care.
“We’re past the time when insurance companies could deny coverage for pre-existing conditions, charge women more for care, or institute yearly and lifetime caps, and it’s clear that we’re not going back. It’s time for Republicans to stop attacks against the ACA and come to terms with the fact that the ACA is the law of the land, that it is working and giving coverage to over 16 million Americans, and that the American people support it.
“I look forward to working with my colleagues to make any necessary fixes to the law so it can better work and benefit the American people.”
