Price Issues Statement on Supreme Court ACA Ruling


Location: Washington, DC

Representative David Price (NC-04) issued the following statement today after the Supreme Court issued its ruling on challenges to the landmark Affordable Care Act.

"The Court's affirmation of the Affordable Care Act is very encouraging. Working and middle class Americans deserve access to affordable, dependable health care. While Republicans have opposed the law's consumer protections, tax breaks for small business, and expanded prescription drug coverage for seniors, I continue to believe it is landmark legislation that will improve health care for millions of Americans.

"Millions of Americans have already benefited from the ACA. Seniors have saved $3.7 billion on prescription drugs because of the ACA. As of April, 12.1 million people with traditional Medicare had received at least one free preventive health care service because of the ACA. Over 6.6 million young people have insurance coverage today because the ACA allows them to stay on their parents' insurance plans until they turn 26. In 2011, 360,000 small businesses took advantage of the tax credits created by the ACA to help 2 million workers afford health insurance.

"Today's decision reaffirms that no American will be denied health insurance coverage because they're sick, and insurance companies can't drop coverage when they need it the most. The ACA empowers consumers. It is an important step forward, and I am proud to have voted for it."
