Manchin Statement On Supreme Court Decision To Uphold ACA

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on the 7-2 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States to uphold the Affordable Care Act (ACA).

“Today’s decision from the Supreme Court yet again affirms the legality of the Affordable Care Act ensuring millions of Americans and more than 700,000 West Virginians with preexisting conditions can keep their healthcare coverage. This is the third time the Supreme Court has considered the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act and each time they have allowed the law to stand. I’ve always said the Affordable Care Act is not perfect but it is past time to move forward and seek lasting solutions that ensure every West Virginian and American has access to affordable and quality healthcare. We can do this in a bipartisan way and I remain committed to working with my colleagues to make these productive changes.”
