Quote of the Day 3/2/2015

“We will not mince words. [If the subsidies are struck down, it will be] a disaster for millions of lower- and middle-income Americans. The ACA’s subsidies have made it possible for more than 9 million men, women, and children to have health care coverage — some for the first time in years; some, no doubt, for the first time in their lives. [If the subsidies are struck down,] the ranks of the uninsured will swell again, with all that portends in the way of untreated illness and overwhelming debt.”

-The American Hospital Association, in a brief filed with the U.S. Supreme Court for the King v. Burwell case challenging subsidies that have been used by nearly 100,000 Oklahomans to purchase health insurance on healthcare.gov. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the case Wednesday.
