Texas AFL-CIO: Federal Court Ruling Against Affordable Care Act Must Not Stand

Statement by Texas AFL-CIO President Rick Levy:

"If allowed to stand, today's outrageous ruling by a Fort Worth-based federal judge could eventually deprive millions of working people of a fair shot at affordable health care."

"We are ashamed that Gov. Abbott, indicted Attorney General Paxton and shadowy Texas interests that cannot abide a historic expansion of health care are undermining one of the clearest messages of the Nov. 6 election: Americans want and need affordable coverage for pre-existing conditions."

"The working families of the Texas AFL-CIO will continue the long fight for health care for all."
