Rep. Quigley reacts to Supreme Court upholding Obama health care law

| No Comments


WASHINGTON - Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05) released the following statement on the Supreme Court's decision:

"I applaud the Supreme Court's decision to uphold health care reform and protect millions of our most vulnerable Americans. Now it's time to put labels and political rhetoric aside and remember what this is about. An insurance company can no longer deny coverage to the 17 million children with a preexisting condition. Seniors no longer have to choose between paying the rent or buying their prescriptions. And college students will no longer lose their insurance on graduation day. It is our responsibility to provide access to affordable health care to Americans, and today's victory should bring peace of mind to families across our country."
