Congressman Leonard Boswell (IA-3) released the following statement after the Supreme Court issued its ruling on the health care law:
"The highest court in the land spoke today and found the Affordable Care Act constitutional. Millions of Americans, including children, seniors, and health care providers, have won today. No one will ever be denied coverage for having a pre-existing condition. If you're a young adult, you can be covered under your parent's plan until your 26 years old. Seniors will continue seeing the gap in their prescription drug coverage close and will be able to take advantage of preventative care, like cancer screenings, without having a co-pay or deductible.
"This decision reaffirms a major victory for the middle class and I will be working to make sure the health care law continues to serve Americans' health care needs and provides families with the necessary security and stability for the future. Now that this law has been reaffirmed, it is time for opponents to stop spreading misinformation in their attempts to confuse the American people on this law. Enrolling approximately 30 million additional Americans in health insurance is an achievement we can be proud of as we act to fulfill our responsibility to those in need. It's time for ALL to work together to make sure the law is enacted fairly and properly. "
