Young Democrats applaud court's decision

This morning, the Supreme Court rightfully upheld the constitutionality of President Obama's Affordable Care Act in a vote that brought conservative and liberal Justices together. The Young Democrats of Georgia applaud this judicial decision, and are elated that the incredibly important provisions of the Affordable Care Act, especially those that impact Georgia's young people, will remain in effect.

"Young Georgians will continue to benefit from President Obama's Affordable Care Act, particularly those provisions that allow them to stay on their parents' insurance up until age 26 and forbid discrimination against people based on any preexisting conditions they may have," said YDG President Louis Elrod. "While we are grateful for the decision, we know that there will still be obstacles ahead as those who disagree will continue to obstruct progress. We are ready to fight to protect this decision, and do all that we can to ensure that President Obama is reelected to a second term so that he can continue to fight for the progressive change this country deserves."
