American Reaction to Supreme Court Ruling on Obama Healthcare Reform

Americans for Job Security: “While President Obama promised not to raise taxes on America’s Middle Class, the Supreme Court today confirmed that he has raised taxes on not only the Middle Class, but every single American.”

Log Cabin Republicans: “Log Cabin looks forward to working with our Republican allies in Congress to repeal and replace Obamacare with real, market-driven reforms that will lower costs while preserving the standard of care Americans deserve.”

Virginia Young Democrats: “The president’s efforts on healthcare have made it a functional reality for millions of Americans who could never have afforded basic coverage under the rising costs within the system.”

The National Retail Federation: “As it stands, the law wrongly focuses more on penalizing employers and the private sector than reducing health costs.”

Taxpayers Protection Alliance: “Obamacare today became the largest tax increase in American history. The health care law has nearly doubled in cost from $940 billion to $1.76 trillion and taxpayers deserve nothing less than full repeal and defunding by Congress.”

Service Employees International Union (SEIU): “Thanks to President Barack Obama and the members of Congress who believed that passing this law would not only save lives, but endow our children with a more promising and secure future, there are more than 100 million Americans of all political parties, ages, incomes and occupations that are benefiting from the Affordable Care Act.”

Maryland Hospital Association: “The health care reform bill is not perfect — what legislation ever is?”

American Hospital Association: “The decision means that hospitals now have much-needed clarity to continue on their path toward transformation.”

Mercer (health care consultants): “The law represents an enormous step forward in our efforts to expand access to care for individuals with mental health or substance use conditions and in our advocacy for prevention of these conditions.”

March of Dimes: “This law will give more pregnant women access to prenatal, maternity and postnatal care; more children the ability to obtain lifesaving vaccines and services to ensure their healthy development; and more families the financial security of knowing that they have adequate c.”

CareFirst BlueCross BlueShield: “Today’s decision by the Supreme Court upholding the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act is historic and allows the country to move forward towards the goal of providing health care coverage to all Americans.”

American Medical Group Association: “We would encourage federal policymakers to remember that delivery system reform is not dependent on any single piece of legislation, but rather the continuing efforts of patient-centered organizations beyond the Beltway that are making healthcare advancements day-in and day-out.”
