WASHINGTON, D.C., June 25, 2015 Alliance for Justice President Nan Aron released the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court decision in King v. Burwell:
We are pleased that the Supreme Court has refrained from overturning the clear intent of Congress that all Americans should have health coverage. With this decision, the court has literally saved thousands of lives – for approximately 10,000 Americans, the loss of health care would have been fatal next year.
Alliance for Justice, www.afj.org believes that all Americans have the right to secure justice in the courts and to have their voices heard when government makes decisions that affect their lives. We are a national association of over 100 organizations, representing a broad array of groups committed to progressive values and the creation of an equitable, just, and free society. Through our justice programs, we lead the progressive community in the fight for a fair judiciary, and through our advocacy programs, we help nonprofits and foundations to realize their advocacy potential.
