Another Victory for the Affordable Care Act

Today the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed the district court’s ruling in the Thomas More Law Center v. Obama case dismissing the challenge to the Affordable Care Act – upholding the law as constitutional.  Tracy Schmaler, Deputy Director of the Office of Public Affairs released the following statement:
“We welcome the Sixth Circuit’s ruling today dismissing this challenge to the Affordable Care Act and its finding that Congress acted within its authority in passing this landmark health care reform law.  We will continue to vigorously defend the health care reform statute in any litigation challenging it.  Throughout history, there have been similar challenges to other landmark legislation such as the Social Security Act, the Civil Rights Act, and the Voting Rights Act, and all of those challenges failed.  We believe these challenges to health reform will also fail.”
