Congresswoman Duckworth’s Statement on King v. Burwell Decision

Washington, DC–(ENEWSPF)–June 25, 2015. Today, Congresswoman Tammy Duckworth (IL-08) released the following statement on the Supreme Court decision in King v. Burwell:

“The Supreme Court’s decision is a major win for my constituents who will avoid significant increases in health insurance costs. The ACA has been successful in providing health insurance to millions of Americans, and hundreds of thousands in Illinois alone, giving patients more control over their health care coverage.”

“Members on both sides of the aisle need to come together to continue building on the gains made through the Affordable Care Act, fixing the parts that need improvement and ensuring that all Americans have access to affordable and quality health insurance. Endless litigation in the courts and countless votes to repeal the law is a partisan and wasteful exercise that does not serve the needs of my constituents.”
