Today U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court's ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act.
"I supported the Affordable Care Act because it guaranteed the Constitutional rights for people with preexisting medical conditions so they cannot be discriminated against and denied health insurance coverage. The Supreme Court's decision upholds these Constitutional rights and provides certainty to folks that they do not have to worry their pre-existing medical condition or age will prevent them from receiving quality, affordable medical care. The ACA also gives new rights to middle class Americans so their insurance company cannot change the rules of the game at their convenience. It's time to let this work, get more people covered and move on with the business of the country. We are all in this together, and our priority has to be putting American people back to work in good, stable jobs here in our country."
