I received this email from Jim Reed’s campaign:
Today, the Supreme Court issued its decision on the Affordable Care Act. It is truly a historic moment for the health of our friends and families, our children and our most vulnerable.
The decision ensures that health care will be more accessible than ever before. For our young Americans, who will be able to stay covered on their parent’s plans until age 26; and those who are ill or who have longstanding age-related health issues, who now cannot be denied coverage or charged unreasonably more due to pre-existing conditions.
Neither will citizens lose coverage at their most vulnerable moments, as lifetime or yearly limits (caps) on medical expenses cannot be imposed. Everyone already covered can keep their insurance and doctors as they currently are.
Going forward, it will be possible for everyone to obtain affordable coverage and millions of additional citizens will be insured, including preventive care and savings on prescription medications, all necessary to lead healthier lives.
Now that the Supreme Court has ruled, we will be able to make adjustments as needed in the law to improve it further.
In addition, Congress will be free to move forward and focus on the future. Americans need and deserve leadership that will now turn their attention toward jobs and the economy, reducing the deficit responsibly, and maintaining important investments in education, clean energy, innovation and infrastructure.
Jim Reed is an attorney and ranch owner in Fall River Mills who was nominated in June for California’s Congressional District 1. Jim Reed is committed to ending the gridlock in Washington, creating jobs and solving the daunting debt dilemma. Jim will fight to make our tax system fair for everybody, not just the wealthy, while preserving Social Security and Medicare for our seniors.
