Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today after the District of Columbia Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional:
"Today's decision is good news for America's families, seniors, young adults, and workers: another court has confirmed that the Affordable Care Act is constitutional.
"With this law, more than 2 million seniors have received a discount on their prescription drugs and more than 22 million seniors have received free preventive services. An additional 1 million young people have gained insurance by staying on their parents' plans, and up to 17 million children with pre-existing conditions are now protected from discrimination.
"We are confident that the Supreme Court will affirm and uphold today's ruling -- ensuring that these Americans continue to benefit from this law and that millions more will face lower health costs and gain greater access to high-quality medical care in the future."
