Rep. Peter Welch (D-Vt.):

“For the second time, the highest court in the land has affirmed the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act,” Congressman Welch said. “And, after over 50 votes, Congress has failed to repeal the law.  Over 16 million previously uninsured Americans now have the peace of mind that comes with health care coverage.  This law, while by no means perfect, is clearly constitutional and clearly the law of the land.  It’s time for Congress to focus on fixing it rather than repealing it so that all Americans finally have access quality and affordable health care.”
