NM Dem Chair Haaland Applauds Supreme Court Decision on ACA

Today, New Mexico Democratic Chairwoman Deb Haaland released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision on the Affordable Care Act in King v. Burwell:

“Because of the Affordable Care Act, more than 50,000 New Mexicans don’t have to choose between paying bills and going to the doctor. Access to affordable health care should be a basic right and not an overwhelming financial burden for those who need medical attention. I am proud that our Supreme Court has once again affirmed that the Affordable Care Act is indeed the law of the land, regardless of what the GOP Presidential field may think. Thanks to today’s ruling Americans are happy to know their family, friends and neighbors will not lose their health insurance.”
