Today, Congressman Xavier Becerra (CA-34), Chairman of the House Democratic Caucus, released the following statement after the Supreme Court ruled 6 to 3 to uphold health care tax credits for millions of Americans in the Affordable Care Act:

"Today, Americans can rest assured that their healthcare security won't be stripped from them. They won't have to worry about returning to a life of fear and insecurity without access to affordable, quality health care.

"The intent of Congress and the Affordable Care Act was always clear: to save lives. Today, the Supreme Court has proven again that our health security law is constitutional. Now, for the sake of all Americans it's time to move forward to protect the health care we have earned. No more political lawsuits, no more partisan legislative attacks, and no going back. Today is a good day."
