Sen. Shilling statement on King v. Burwell decision
"As a result of this ruling, tens of thousands of Wisconsinites will continue to have the security of access to affordable health care."
MADISON – After the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 6-3 in favor of upholding another key component of the Affordable Care Act, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:
“With today’s ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court acknowledged that repealing the Affordable Care Act would have a devastating impact on people throughout Wisconsin and across the country. As a result of this ruling, tens of thousands of Wisconsinites will continue to have the security of access to affordable health care.
“Today is a big step forward, but more work is needed to improve access to critical health care services and lower the cost of care for everyone in our state. It is time for Wisconsin to join the 30 other states across the country – states that are governed by both Democrats and Republicans – and accept federal funding to strengthen BadgerCare. This commonsense measure would lower health care costs for everyone and save state taxpayers an estimated $360 million over the next two years.”
