Washington, D.C. – Following the Supreme Court’s 7-2 ruling rejecting Republican states’ challenge to the Affordable Care Act in California v. Texas, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous released the following statement:
“The Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare is a victory for the millions of Americans who depend on this law for their health care. Time and time again, the Far Right has sought to undermine the Affordable Care Act in court with flimsy legal arguments that have failed. We are glad to see the Supreme Court reject this latest effort to destroy health care access for millions of people, and hope the ACA’s detractors will finally stop their cruel campaign to rip medical care away from people who need it most. ”
