Hillary Clinton, while saying the Affordable Care Act isn't "perfect," is embracing the law at the outset of her presidential campaign, following Thursday's Supreme Court decision upholding a key piece of Obamacare.
The Supreme Court rejected the plaintiff's arguments in King v. Burwell, upholding subsidies in every state, regardless of whether its exchange was federally or state-run.
"I applaud the Supreme Court's decision to affirm what the authors of the Affordable Care Act clearly intended and wrote into law: that health insurance should be affordable and available in every state across the country," Clinton said in a statement.
Clinton also argued that it's time for Republicans, who have voted to repeal or dismantle the law more than 50 times, to "move on."
"Now that the Supreme Court has once again re-affirmed the ACA as the law of the land, it's time for the Republican attacks to end," Clinton said.
While acknowledging unspecified imperfections in the law, Clinton highlighted several of its more popular components, like health insurance companies no longer being able to discriminate against people for preexisting conditions.
Clinton also pointed to her own push for health care reform, which included an ill-fated attempt during her husband's administration, adding "I'm not going to stop now." Despite the Affordable Care Act still drawing divided public support, Clinton shows no signs of walking away.
