Release: ADP Statement on the California v. Texas SCOTUS Decision

PHOENIX — Today, the Supreme Court in a 7-2 decision voted to reaffirm the Affordable Care Act, allowing hundreds of thousands of Arizonans to breathe a deep sigh of relief, knowing this GOP-led attack on their health care has been defeated.

This decision is a firm rejection of Republicans’ decade-long crusade to rip away protections for pre-existing conditions, end Medicaid expansion, and hike health care costs. As a reminder, Attorney General Brnovich filed an amicus brief eagerly joining in on the now-failed effort to overturn the Affordable Care Act.

Arizonans deserve to know if Republican Senate candidates agree with this decision, and will commit to continuing to defend the Affordable Care Act.

ADP Chair Raquel Terán released the following statement:

“This decisive Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the hundreds of thousands of Arizonans whose right to quality, affordable health care was on the line due to the Republican’s reckless and dangerous agenda. For over a decade, while Republicans have worked to dismantle this legislation, Democrats have fought to lower costs and improve coverage and that’s what our elected Democrats will continue to do after this ruling.

“But while Democrats will continue to fight for Arizonans’ health care, Republicans, especially those in the U.S. Senate race, must tell Arizonans why they are continuing to support their party’s decade-long effort to rip health care away from Arizonans.”
