Consumers Union Statement on Federal Judge’s Ruling on Health Reform Law in Florida

WASHINGTON: DeAnn Friedholm, the director of Consumers Union’s health reform campaign, made the following statement today after a federal judge in Florida ruled the nation’s health reform law unconstitutional: “Today’s decision demonstrates once again that federal judges are divided on the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act and the Supreme Court will ultimately have to decide. But as courts continue to wrestle with the constitutional question, consumers continue to enjoy new protections. We will keep up our efforts to inform Americans about their new rights and important changes that rein in insurance industry abuses.”
