Statement of California Democratic Party Chairman John Burton on U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Upholding Affordable Care Act


The highest court in the land has upheld the historic Affordable Care Act passed by a Democratic Congress and signed into law by President Obama. Millions of Americans are already experiencing the benefits of the law and more stand to benefit still in the near future.

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney and Congressional Republicans continue to talk of repealing the law instead of focusing on strengthening our economic recovery and making sure Americans have good jobs here at home. The reaction from the Republican House leadership and their calls for a full repeal are another reminder that Democrats’ work is far from done and reforms won’t be fully protected until we win back the House and return the Speaker’s gavel to Nancy Pelosi.
