Congressman Adam Smith released the following statement regarding the King v. Burwell Supreme Court Decision:
“The decision issued by the Supreme Court of the United States today ensures that American workers and middle class families, regardless of what state they live in, will be able to access affordable and quality healthcare. Federal tax credits made available through the Affordable Care Act save lives by continuing to make healthcare affordable for millions of Americans, that would otherwise be out of the marketplace. This decision ensures that those tax credits remain available.
“The Affordable Care Act has now been upheld by the Supreme Court twice. In that time, millions of Americans who couldn’t afford healthcare before, are now insured. Instead of continuing to fight to repeal a law that has benefitted millions, I hope both Republicans and Democrats can come together to look for ways to improve upon the law, rather than continuing to fight to dismantle it.”
