Machinists Union Statement on Supreme Court Ruling on GOP Lawsuit to Strike Down Affordable Care Act

WASHINGTON, June 17, 2021 – Robert Martinez Jr., International President of the 600,000-member International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers (IAM), released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s ruling on the GOP’s lawsuit to strike down the Affordable Care Act:

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling upholding the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act is a victory for working families. The Affordable Care Act has been successful in providing access to millions of previously uninsured Americans. We look forward to working on expanding coverage for the millions still without health insurance. Now that the Supreme Court has brushed back another failed attempt to overturn the Affordable Care Act, the Machinists Union will continue to fight to ensure companies move away from shifting an even greater burden of healthcare costs to members during negotiations. We must all work together to make the Affordable Care Act stronger to relieve financial burdens created by the lack of health coverage.”
