WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley (D-OR) says he's pleased with this morning's Supreme Court Decision upholding subsidies for the Affordable Care Act. The Oregon Democrat released a statement saying he's "relieved that millions of Americans will continue to have access to quality, affordable health insurance. This case never should have gone this far, but the Court made the right decision today."
He adds, “Now that this desperate attempt to upend the law at the expense of Americans’ well-being has failed, Democrats and Republicans should work together to make the health care system work efficiently and effectively for all Americans.”
