WASHINGTON, June 25, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) released the following statement after the Supreme Court issued its 6-3 ruling in the King v. Burwell case that will uphold Affordable Care Act subsidies nationwide:
"Today's decision is a victory for America, for families and children across our great nation, and for the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The highest court in the land has now ruled—for the second time—to uphold one of the major tenets of this law. As a result of this historic decision, any individual, in any state, will have access to quality, affordable health insurance. This is a proud moment for me, and for all of my colleagues who worked tirelessly to push this legislation to passage and who have continued our efforts to ensure that its implementation is successful.
"This decision is especially important to the 600,000 Pennsylvanians who will benefit from Governor Wolf's commitment to expand Medicaid, embracing the provision of ACA that extends Medicaid eligibility for low-income adults."
