Illinois's 10th District Democratic Nominee, Brad Schneider, released the following statement today after the Supreme Court ruled the Affordable Care Act constitutional:
"Today's decision affirmed that all Americans should and will have access to quality and affordable healthcare. After nearly two decades working with family-owned companies, I know we still need to improve the law, working to lower costs for small businesses and their employees. But we can't afford to go backwards as some Tea Party Republicans in Washington are threatening to repeal the health care law and give insurance companies free reign to abuse consumers. In Congress, I will work to ensure that small businesses can receive tax credits for covering their employees, that young adults can stay on their parent's health plan, and that denial of coverage for preexisting conditions is a thing of the past."
