Dina Titus, Democratic candidate for Nevada's First Congressional District, released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court upholding the Affordable Care Act this morning:
"Today is a great day for children who can stay on their parents' health insurance plans until they are 26, and people with preexisting conditions who had previously been discriminated against by private insurance companies. I was proud to vote for this legislation that ended the worst abuses of the insurance industry. While today is an important milestone in ensuring affordable, quality healthcare for Nevadans, we still have a lot more work to do in making healthcare more affordable for Nevada families. What we can't do is what Mitt Romney, Dean Heller, and Joe Heck want to do, which is to end Medicare by turning it over to profit-first private insurance companies. In Congress, I will fight with President Obama and Shelley Berkley to create jobs and protect Nevada seniors from Washington Republicans trying to pull the rug out from under them."
