Bennet Applauds Supreme Court Decision to Uphold the Affordable Care Act

Washington, D.C. – Today, Colorado U.S. Senator Michael Bennet released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court announced their decision in California v. Texas to dismiss a lawsuit backed by former President Donald Trump seeking to overturn the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA) which protects over two million Coloradans with pre-existing conditions: 

“The Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act reaffirms the right of all Americans to health care and maintains protections for millions of people who have lived in constant fear of losing their care. It’s time to move past these partisan challenges and build on the progress of the ACA. It’s never been more critical for Congress and the White House to work together to pass a public option to achieve universal health care in this country.”
