Jun 25, 2015 Issues: Health Care

Washington DC – Congressman Tim Ryan makes the following statement on the United States Supreme Court King v Burwell case, ruling that federal subsidies for the Affordable Care Act are legal in states that did not build their own marketplace:

Today’s decision means 161,000 Ohioans and 6.4 million Americans will be able to keep their health care. It is clear that the Affordable Care Act ensures that everyone in the United States has the right to access affordable, quality health coverage– regardless of who they are or where they live. I applaud the Supreme Court for making the right decision and prioritizing our nation’s health. I vow to continue working to improve and expand this law, which gives so many the care they need and so deeply deserve.
