Washington, D.C. — Nevada Senator Harry Reid released the following statement today regarding a recent federal district court ruling about health care reform law:
“This lawsuit is the latest effort to roll back rules that bar insurance companies from abusive practices like denying health insurance to people with pre-existing conditions. Fourteen federal district judges have rejected lawsuits like this one, making this ruling an outlier.
“Opponents of reform have tried everything to protect insurance companies and block common-sense protections for middle-class families in Nevada and across the nation. That fight is over. It’s time to move on, and work together to implement reform in a way that puts families in control of their health care, and lowers costs for both families and small businesses.”
