LANSING
– In what is becoming a standard split Supreme Court ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court this morning upheld as Constitutional the Affordable Care Act – President Barack Obama’s pre-eminent domestic policy accomplishment.

“This is an important day for the American people,” said Lance Enderle, Democratic candidate for the 8th Congressional District. “Today we are one step closer to securing the inalienable right of health care for all Americans. Health care is a right for every citizen, not a privilege for the privileged. I will continue to fight for the preservation of this right.”
In spite of a vocal minority of astroturf opposition the law, Enderle noted, the actual components of the law remain remarkably well received by the vast majority of Americans.

Factors like the 80/20 regulation (requiring that 80% of the money citizens pay into health insurance actually goes to treatment and care, while only 20% can go to corporate overhead; right now most insurance companies have those figures reversed), allowing young people to stay on their parents’ insurance plans for a longer period of time, and the provision that insurance companies cannot refuse to insure people on the basis of pre-existing conditions are all extremely popular. (According to NYTimes/CBS polling data.)

“Clearly the Republicans – including Mike (Rogers), my opponent – were wrong on this issue ,” says Enderle. “All the huffing and puffing and bloviating of the Republican echo chamber and the Fox News grumble channel could not do one simple thing – change the U.S. Constitution.

Mike would do well to remember, we are a country of laws, not corporate power. SCOTUS has spoken, health care reform is Constitutional. It’s time for the GOP, and Mike, to apologize for ripping the fabric of America apart with lies, deceit and misinformation in order to garner partisan points.”
