Sen. Bass Statement on King v. Burwell Ruling

OKLAHOMA CITY – Senate Democratic Leader Randy Bass, D-Lawton, today released the following statement in response to the United States Supreme Court’s decision in King v. Burwell:

“The Affordable Care Act is far from perfect, but it is working. The subsidies are helping more than 87,000 Oklahomans access quality, affordable health coverage. But we can, and must, do more for hard working Oklahomans and their families.

“It’s time for Oklahoma Republicans to stop playing politics and stop fighting against this step in the right direction. Instead, we need to start taking more steps, together, toward making Oklahomans healthier and stronger.

“We need to work together to make sure more hard working Oklahomans have access to affordable healthcare. It’s long past time for us to expand healthcare coverage for low-income, hardworking Oklahomans by accepting Federal funds and expanding Medicaid.”
