Court ruling paves way toward secure health care future
We are very pleased with today's Supreme Court ruling. After months of uncertainty, Coloradans now have the security of knowing they will have access to quality, affordable health care.
Prior to the passage of the Affordable Care Act, there was a staggering gap between Americans who had access to affordable health care and those who did not. The act's reforms are bridging that gap and will help to secure health care coverage for all Americans.
Many Coloradans have benefited from increased access to care, expanded services and peace of mind from the changes already in place. We look forward to additional benefits in the coming years.
While the legal debate is over, the political debate will continue. As a result, we remain committed to supporting and explaining efforts to repair a health care system that previously limited access to insurance coverage and care, strained the national economy and was unaffordable to tens of millions of Americans.
We are off to a good start under the Affordable Care Act. Much work remains, but now we can more forward to a better health care future, one that makes it possible for more Americans to lead healthy lives and one that provides a vital safety net for those who need it.
