Costello Statement on Supreme Court Decision Upholding Individual Mandate and the Affordable Care Act


Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Congressman Jerry Costello (D-IL) today issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's decision upholding the individual mandate and finding the Affordable Care Act constitutional:

"This is a very significant ruling for the American people. As I have said before, the Affordable Care Act is not a perfect law, but it is an important step forward in making sure all Americans have access to health insurance and improving our health care system. It has had tremendous positive impacts already, eliminating pre-existing condition restrictions, allowing young adults to remain on their parents' insurance until age 26, and making prescription drugs more affordable for our seniors. Now that the Supreme Court has found it constitutional, moving forward, we need to concentrate on implementing the rest of the law as efficiently as possible."
