Following is a statement from Cheri Bustos, Democratic candidate for Congress in Illinois 17th Congressional District regarding the Supreme Court's ruling today on the Affordable Care Act:
"The Supreme Court has ruled, and now our leaders in Washington need to move on. To me, health care isn't about politics. It's personal. I lost my brother when his insurance company wouldn't cover the drug he needed. We need to continue working to improve health care. But most importantly, our country needs to focus on strengthening our economy. Washington needs to get its priorities straight by cutting wasteful spending and ending the Bush tax breaks for millionaires, oil companies and companies that outsource jobs, so we can focus on creating jobs and protecting Social Security and Medicare."
