Gillibrand Statement on Supreme Court Ruling to Uphold Health Care Law

June 28, 2012

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Kirsten Gillibrand issued the following statement today after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to uphold the Affordable Care Act:

“I am pleased the Supreme Court reaffirmed the hard fought progress that was made to ensure that no one can be denied coverage for a pre-existing condition, being a woman will no longer be a pre-existing condition, young adults will be covered, prescription drug costs for seniors will be reduced, preventive care including life-saving mammograms will be accessible and that insurance companies can’t cancel their coverage when you get sick. It is time to get beyond scoring political points and get back to finding common core values and passing legislation that will help grow our economy and get more people back to work.”
