Debbie Dingell Weighs In On Supreme Court Affordable Healthcare Act Ruling


Michigan Congresswoman Debbie Dingell says she is pleased with today's US Supreme court ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act. Listen to her thoughts and reaction in an interview with WEMU.

Congresswoman Dingell said the Supreme Court today affirmed that the Affordable Care Act will continue the country on a path to ensuring every American has access to quality, affordable healthcare.  The 6-3 vote by the US Supreme court sends a loud, strong message across the nation that health care is a right not a privilege.  Dingell added that the decision is a victory for working families across the country.

Debbie Dingell was elected U.S. Representative to Congress from Michigan’s 12th District in November 2014.
