Rep. Murphy on SCOTUS Decision to Uphold the Affordable Care Act


ST. PAUL — In response to the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold the Affordable Care Act, known by many as Obamacare, State Representative Erin Murphy offered the following comment:

“Today’s ruling is a truly historic moment for our country. Upholding of the Affordable Care Act, not only means that Americans will have coverage and health care security, but also that we as a nation are moving forward to ensure a more just and healthier country.

“Regardless of age, income status, gender, race, or health status, Minnesotans will have access to affordable health care when they need it. This is historic in American health care.

“Moving forward, I hope we can push aside the politic stalemate of the last two years and work together with Republican colleagues to effectively implement these policies so Minnesotans and folks across the country can reap the benefits for themselves, their families, and their communities.”
