Third Way Statement on The Health Care Reform Law Ruling by the United States Supreme Court
"a monumental victory for our country..."
June 28, 2012
The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the landmark Affordable Care Act is a monumental victory for our country and the millions of Americans who will continue to benefit from this law. Today the Court reaffirmed the goal that the President and a majority in Congress agreed to—stable and secure health care coverage for our middle class and our nation.
Because of this ruling, if you have a pre-existing condition, you will be guaranteed health care. If you become gravely ill, there will not be limits on your benefits. If you are a woman, you will not be charged higher premiums. If you have son or daughter without coverage, you will be able to put them on your policy until they are 26. And, if you lose your job, you will not lose coverage.
The fight over this law is over, and it is time for the GOP to throw in the towel. Congress has debated, their Court has rebuffed them, and now we as a country can move forward to tackle new issues affecting our economy and middle class.
