We're All in This Together to Help 440,000 Uninsured Oregonians
Statement by OCPP policy analyst Janet Bauer on today's Supreme Court ruling upholding the Affordable Care Act
The Supreme Court decision is a victory for all Oregonians. Oregon can continue to move forward with confidence with its plans to reach 440,000 uninsured Oregonians mainly through the Oregon Health Plan and a new health insurance exchange for individuals and small businesses.
The Affordable Care Act is a promise to Americans and Oregonians that we're all in this together. After today's ruling, we remain together.
