On Thursday, the entire Senate Democratic Caucus announced it has signed on to support Senate Bill 50 and Senate Bill 51,which are designed to protect essential parts of the Affordable Care Act. These bills were drafted after a politically motivated federal court decision in Texas that wrongly deemed the ACA unconstitutional.
Should that decision be upheld, we want to be proactive and ensure Pennsylvanians have coverage for preexisting conditions, as well as the 10 essential health benefits, which are explained on my website.
We have seen the evidence and heard the voices of the people. We know that quality, affordable health care is a top priority. The Senate Democratic Caucus has always fought for the people and we will continue to put the people first, especially on health care issues.
