Casey Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on the Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON, DC – U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released the following statement on the Supreme Court’s ruling on the Affordable Care Act:

“The fact that this law was upheld means that Pennsylvanians will not lose their coverage due to preexisting conditions, young adults will be allowed coverage under a parent’s plan and older Americans will not have to face dramatic increases in prescription drug costs.  I will continue to work with other senators to make improvements to the legislation.  Further, there is no doubt that we still confront significant challenges to reducing the cost of healthcare and the only way to address these in the long-run is for Democrats and Republicans to work together.”
