I applaud the United States Supreme Court for ruling to leave the Affordable Care Act (ACA) intact. Their decision will ensure that all Americans have access to affordable health care.
In Pennsylvania alone, ACA has provided health care coverage to 91,000 young people under the age of 26 under their parents' plan. Further, President Obama's health care legislation has also helped cut costs on medications as 235,820 seniors saved $645 on their prescription drugs in 2011.
But the fight is not over. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt explicitly included in his 2nd Bill of Rights in 1944, "The right to adequate medical care and the opportunity to achieve and enjoy good health." As a Member of Congress, I will work to make sure that his vision becomes a reality.
