Whitehouse Statement on Texas Ruling Striking Down ACA

Washington, DC – U.S. Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), a member of the Senate Finance Committee, released the following statement on the ruling tonight by a federal judge in Texas striking down the Affordable Care Act:

“Republicans’ legal crusade against the Affordable Care Act is a political stunt, but a dangerous one that puts health coverage and vital health protections for millions of Americans at risk.  Tonight’s ruling won’t take effect immediately, and the Texas judge is far from the last word.  But this should serve as a wake-up call to the Republicans pursuing this strategy.  The American people want their health care protected, not attacked.”
