(Paterson, NJ) – Assembly Majority Conference Leader Shavonda E. Sumter (D-Bergen, Passaic) issued the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s Affordable Healthcare Act ruling:
“The decision to uphold the Affordable Healthcare Act is a vote for the people. Healthcare is not a privilege for only a few but for all Americans.
“There are over 200,000 New Jersey families that rely on the Affordable Healthcare Act and its subsidies whom would otherwise be unable to afford the rising costs of health insurance. There are over 10 million Americans that benefit from this ruling. This a good day for America and a sign that we as a country are making strides toward sustaining affordable healthcare.”
