Doctors for America’s President – Florida Decision Means Business as Usual


.

Washington, DC – Today, Dr. Vivek Murthy, President of Doctors for America, had the following reaction to U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson’s ruling that the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable thus declaring the entire law void:

“Over a dozen courts have heard constitutional challenges to the health care reform law. The vast majority of these challenges have been dismissed. If today’s ruling is allowed to stand, millions of Americans will lose the freedoms and protections that the Affordable Care Act has already started to provide. The insurance industry will be back to business as usual - using pre-existing conditions to deny care and dropping patients from coverage when they get sick.  It is our hope that the U.S. Court of Appeals reverses this decision on appeal”
