Executive Constantine on Supreme Court ruling upholding health insurance tax subsidies


In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court today ruled that subsidies to purchase health insurance on the federal exchange are allowed under the Affordable Care Act.


"I am pleased that today's U.S. Supreme Court decision preserves health insurance for millions of Americans who otherwise couldn't afford it. Healthcare rights are human rights.

"I'm proud that King County continues to lead the way, creating a network of community partners that has helped more than 200,000 King County residents get affordable healthcare. Let's hope that Congress and the rest of the country learn from our success."
