Johnson: Health Care Ruling A Win For SD, The Nation
Sen. Tim Johnson, (D) SD

WASHINGTON -

Senator Tim Johnson is celebrating the US Supreme Court's decision to uphold the majority of the President's Health Care reform law.  He says changes to health care has helped thousands of South Dakotans and is a victory for the nation.

"I applaud today's Supreme Court decision to uphold the health care reform law.  This is a huge win for South Dakotans and the nation. I have always believed health care reform was constitutional.  Critically, the Supreme Court upheld the individual mandate," Johnson said in a release. 

"From kids to seniors, health care reform has made a positive difference in the lives of tens of thousands of South Dakotans.  More than 9,000 young adults in South Dakota have been covered under their parent's health insurance policies since the beginning of the year.

"Nearly 100,000 South Dakotans on Medicare received free preventive services like mammograms and colonoscopies as a result of health reform.  Already this year, beneficiaries reaching the donut hole have saved an average of $690 on prescription drugs with the help of health reform.

"I look forward to continue working with members of both parties to reduce health care costs and increase health insurance coverage.  The Supreme Court decision upholding the health care reform law gives us the foundation to do just that."
