Washington, DC — On June 17, 2021, Natalie Davis, co-Founder and Acting Executive Director of United States of Care, released the following statement in response to the Supreme Court ruling in the California v. Texas case that sought to invalidate the entire Affordable Care Act.
“Today’s Supreme Court ruling finally brings peace of mind to those who feared having their health care torn away by the courts. The Affordable Care Act is the law of the land and today’s ruling is a victory for the people whose lives are more secure because of it.
It is time — especially in the wake of a pandemic — that we put a permanent stop to wielding people’s health care as a political tool or bargaining chip.
Yet another Supreme Court decision in support of the law means that it is time to move beyond these battles and work to create a more affordable, reliable, and more equitable health care system.
It’s time for our leaders to get to work on building a health care system where all people have dependable access to high quality care that they can afford and that meets their personal needs.”
