Councilmember Bruce Harrell’s statement on Supreme Court’s Health Care Decision

Published by under Civil Rights,Health

My statement regarding Supreme Court’s Health Care Decision (issued June 28, 2012):

Today, Councilmember Bruce Harrell, Chair of the Council’s Public Safety, Civil Rights and Technology Committee, released the following statement overwhelmingly supporting the United States Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act. The Supreme Court upheld the Affordable Care Act, ending two years of fierce debate.

“I have seen the detrimental impact of not having medical coverage in my own life through the eyes of family members, friends, and colleagues. This decision will ensure that they are no longer one major medical emergency away from health and financial disaster,” said Councilmember Harrell. “People can now seek solace knowing that their health is not tied to their employment status. This is absolutely critical in building a healthy Seattle.”

The Councilmember would like to thank President Obama, Congress, and specifically the members of the Washington State congressional delegation for taking the hard steps to address health care coverage in this country. Today’s decision is just a start. Now, lawmakers at the local level must move forward together to implement the Affordable Care Act.
