Today, Congresswoman Gwen Moore (WI-4) released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act (ACA) constitutional:
"Today's decision is a victory for all Americans. We can now be assured that Americans continue to receive the health care they urgently need and most definitely deserve.
"So many in my home state of Wisconsin will benefit and are already benefitting from the ACA. They can now breathe a sigh of relief that they will continue to benefit from critical patient protections, lower costs, expanded coverage and greater accountability from the insurance industry.
"While my Republican colleagues will continue their crusade to dismantle this groundbreaking legislation, it is my sincere hope that we will continue to build upon this ruling so that we can continue to put in place measures that will decrease costs, ensure service and increase access to health care. But it will take the efforts of both Republicans and Democrats.
"Healthcare should be a right not a privilege for a few. Today's ruling helps to reaffirm that belief and is a bold step forward in the right direction."
