Rahall Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on Healthcare Act
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Nick J. Rahall (D-W.Va.) Thursday issued the following statement regarding today’s ruling by the Supreme Court on the Affordable Care Act:
“Today, the Supreme Court affirmed that, in America, patients have rights. As long as this law remains in place, no American will lose their health coverage when they need it most, or fall into bankruptcy because of a lifetime limit on their coverage, or be denied coverage because of a pre-existing condition.
“As a nation, we must address the fact that, without reform, those with insurance will continue to pay for those without it, and our seniors and working families will see their health costs skyrocket, while their benefits plummet.
“With this decision, it’s now time to move forward with the business of improving the law, recognizing that, in America, we value health care as a basic human right.”
