The decision that was announced by the Supreme Court is a victory for America’s families. It was a victory for America’s families when we passed the Affordable Care Act and the President signed it into law.
Since then, tens of millions of people in our country are already benefitting from the legislation. As you know, as the President said so eloquently, children can no longer be denied coverage due to pre-existing conditions, young people, children and students, and young people, can stay on their parents policy until they’re 26 years old. Seniors are paying less for prescription drugs and have access to free wellness and preventative visits. When the bill comes into effect, being a woman will no longer be a pre-existing medical condition. It’s a victory for women. It’s about wellness. It’s about prevention. It’s about the health of America, not just the health care. It’s pretty exciting.
