WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer (MD) released the following statement after a Virginia District Court judge ruled on the Affordable Care Act:

“Today’s court ruling—like the previous federal district rulings affirming the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act—represents an individual step in the judicial process. I have every confidence that when the legal process has been concluded, the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act will be upheld.”

“Millions of Americans are already benefitting from The Affordable Care Act, whether they are children with pre-existing conditions, young Americans able to keep health coverage on their parents’ plans, or seniors finding it easier to afford the prescription drugs they need—and, because today’s ruling did not freeze implementation of the law, I am happy that they will continue to enjoy those benefits.”
