Merkley Statement on King v. Burwell Ruling

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkley released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court announced its decision in King v. Burwell:

“I’m relieved that millions of Americans will continue to have access to quality, affordable health insurance. This case never should ‎have gone this far, but the Court made the right decision today. 

“Now that this desperate attempt to upend the law at the expense of Americans’ well-being has failed, Democrats and Republicans should work together to make the health care system work efficiently and effectively for all Americans.”
