WASHINGTON— Congressman Chris Murphy released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision regarding the Affordable Care Act:
The Supreme Court did the right thing, and today, Connecticut residents can have confidence that they will get better and more affordable care in the years to come.
Now that the law has been upheld, we know for certain that seniors will pay less for their drugs at the pharmacy, sick people will never be denied health insurance, small businesses will pay less to insure their employees, and the quality of health care will increase over time for all Americans.
I was a strong supporter of the bill because it was the right way to begin fixing a very broken health care system. Though this was a split decision by the court, it’s now time for Republicans to stop their attempts to repeal this bill, so that we can come together to implement it in a way that benefits Connecticut patients and taxpayers.
