Washington, DC – Today, the Supreme Court issued its ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (P.L. 11-148). In an opinion written by Chief Justice John Roberts, the Court upheld the Affordable Care Act.
Congresswoman Betty McCollum (MN-04) – a long-time advocate of universal health care – issued the following statement.
“Two years ago, I was proud to vote in support of the Affordable Care Act. Today’s historic Supreme Court decision affirms President Obama’s leadership to extend healthcare coverage to millions of Americans. It is now time for Republicans in Congress to end their vitriolic repeal campaign and work on effectively implementing this law to the benefit of the American people.”
