Disability Groups Call Supreme Court Ruling On Affordable Care Act A Victory
[Source: Disability Scoop]
A U.S. Supreme Court ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act is a big win for people with disabilities, advocates say.
The nation’s high court ruled 7-2 late last week that several states and two individuals who challenged the constitutionality of the health care law lacked standing. The decision keeps the law known as Obamacare intact.
“(This) decision is an enormous victory for people with disabilities and for all Americans,” said Jennifer Mathis, director of policy and legal advocacy at the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law. “The Affordable Care Act has saved lives and enabled millions of people with disabilities to live full lives in their own homes and communities.”
