Iowa Democratic Party: "Today was an unequivocal victory for the American people"

DES MOINES (KWWL) -

Iowa Democratic Party Chairwoman Sue Dvorsky says that the U.S. Supreme Court's decision on the Affordable Health Care Act was a win for the American people.

Read her full statement:

"Today was an unequivocal victory for the American people. Health care has been protected for 34 million Americans, including the 12 percent of Iowans living without health insurance.

"By virtue of President Obama's bold leadership, 18,000 Iowans under 26 can now stay on their parent's insurance and two million Iowans no longer have to worry about lifetime caps or losing insurance when they get sick. Soon, no American will ever again be denied care or charged more due to a pre-existing condition. President Obama believes quality affordable health insurance you can rely on is at the heart of middle class security. The Iowa Democratic Party agrees with this 100 percent."

"We move forward today knowing that this law makes us a stronger and healthier nation. We can now return to the mission of getting Iowans back to work in this recovering economy."
