Senator Janis Ringhand Statement on the U.S. Supreme Court Decision to Uphold the Affordable Care Act

 

“Today, the United States Supreme Court made the correct decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

This is a victory for the nearly 25,000 families and individuals from the five counties in the 15th Senate District who will continue to have affordable, quality health care.

I am happy to join the Wisconsin Medical Society, AARP, Wisconsin Hospital Association, Wisconsin Council on Children & Families, Wisconsin Association of Health Plans, Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association and people throughout Wisconsin in supporting the Supreme Court’s decision.

Now Wisconsin should strengthen BadgerCare by bringing back the $360 million in federal tax dollars that the people of Wisconsin have already paid to make sure that everyone has health care coverage.”
