Leslie Coolidge, Barrington Hills Democrat running in the 6th Congressional District:
"Today's Supreme Court decision is a victory for the millions of Americans who pay too much for health insurance, lack health insurance benefits and protections they deserve, or lack health insurance entirely. Thousands of families in the 6th Congressional District will benefit from provisions of the now-upheld law which prohibit insurers from denying coverage for pre-existing conditions, prohibit unfair caps on health coverage payouts, allow children to stay on their parents' health insurance until the age of 26 and ensure that preventive care such as mammograms and other cancer screenings are covered at no additional cost to consumers. This Supreme Court decision moves us toward an America where no family will lose their homes or face bankruptcy because of an illness.
"The leadership of the U.S. House of Representatives is taking the wrong approach in re-committing itself, in an intensely partisan fashion, to full repeal of the law."
