Risser Statement on Supreme Court Rulings


(MADISON)—State Senator Fred Risser (D-Madison) issued the following statement on the historic Supreme Court rulings this week:


“It has been a remarkable week for our country. This week we have seen the Supreme Court uphold the Affordable Healthcare Act, ensuring that those who could not afford health insurance before (including over 150,000 Wisconsinites) will continue to be able to get coverage. We have seen the Court acknowledge that love is love and grant everyone the right to marry in every state. And finally this week, we are seeing action being taken to remove from public buildings a flag that has represented a time of unimaginable suffering. This week is truly a testament to our nation’s enduring commitment to realizing greater equality for everyone and is a time for celebration!”
