"This is not the first, nor will it be the last, challenge to the health care reform law that will, ultimately, be decided by the Supreme Court. I am confident that, when all is said and done, the constitutionality of the health care reform law will be affirmed.
Newly implemented health care reforms are closing the Medicare Part D donut hole, making prescription drugs for seniors more affordable; allowing parents to keep their children up to age 26 on the family health care plan; and preventing insurance companies from denying coverage to children with pre-existing conditions. These reforms are now in place, with more to come as the new law is fully implemented.
I will continue to focus on strengthening and improving the health care reforms that are already making such a positive difference in the lives of so many Wisconsin families."
