Senator Markey Statement on Supreme Court Ruling in California v. Texas Affordable Care Act Case
Washington (June 17, 2021) – U.S. Senator Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.) released the following statement today after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act:
“Today’s decision ensures that nearly three million Massachusetts residents with pre-existing conditions can breathe easier knowing that far-right attacks on their health care have fallen short again,” said Senator Markey. “The Affordable Care Act is a lifesaving law for millions of Americans, and we will do everything we can to protect that care as we fight to expand it to universal coverage. Now that the Supreme Court has set aside yet another challenge to the Affordable Care Act, the GOP should end its failed and unpopular crusade to rob millions of Americans of their health care.”
