Press Releases | Statement on Supreme Court Decision Upholding Affordable Care Act
Ways and Means Committee Ranking Member Sander Levin (D-MI) today made the following statement applauding the Supreme Court decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act:
“The winners today are the American people. After nearly five decades – spanning eight presidents – we have succeeded in enacting comprehensive health care reform. Americans are already benefitting from the law’s provisions that prevent the worst insurance company abuses, expand preventive care, reduce prescription drug costs for seniors, and allow young adults to stay on their parents’ insurance.
“Now we can move forward and implement the law’s provisions that will expand coverage, and reform our overall system to reduce costs for middle class families. I urge my Republican colleagues to respect the opinion of the Court and end their misleading and partisan all-out assault on health care reform.”
