Rep. Capuano statement on Supreme Court decision upholding Affordable Care Act

June 28, 2012

“I am very pleased today that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act. With this ruling, Americans will continue to benefit from vital protections such as coverage for pre-existing conditions. It took far too long to achieve comprehensive health care reform and today’s ruling means that we won’t be going back to the days when too many Americans couldn’t afford health care or were denied access to coverage”.
