Press Release

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) released the following statement after the Supreme Court announced its decision in King v. Burwell:

“Today, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is the law of the land and every American should have access to affordable healthcare.

“This law is designed to help all Americans who cannot afford to pay for their health insurance. The Court’s decision ensures that all eligible Americans, regardless of where they live, have access to life-saving health care.  

“This is a victory for families and future generations of Americans who seek to receive the rightful right to quality care. Having now lost in the Supreme Court twice, Republicans must end their efforts to dismantle the Affordable Care Act once and for all.  After 60 votes to repeal or undermine the Affordable Care Act, the GOP assault on the newfound health security of millions of Americans must stop.”
