U.S. Rep. Rush Holt says the act, like so many others in America's past, will be tweaked and refined over time.
To the Editor: The essence of the Affordable Care Act is to guarantee, through a variety of approaches, that every American can count on having access to excellent health care. We still have much work to do. Every major piece of American legislation ever passed, from Social Security to Medicare to the Civil Rights Act, has been refined and improved over the years. So, too, the Affordable Care Act will be refined and improved as we gain experience with it. Today’s decision ensures that we can continue making progress toward the goal of guaranteeing access to excellent health care for every American. U.S. Rep. Rush Holt
