A Victory for All

Posted: Jun 29, 2012


The Supreme Court’s ruling on Thursday in upholding the Affordable Care Act is a “historic decision that helps both supporters and opponents of the health care reform, and a huge victory for President Obama,” says an editorial today in La Opinión.

Among other things, the editorial notes that the ACA will expand insurance coverage for millions who “today live with the real possibility that an illness could drive them into bankruptcy.”

Latinos are the highest uninsured group, nationally, according to the editorial, and according to a study released last week by the non-profit health advocacy organization, Families USA, 26,000 people nationwide die each year because they have no health insurance, with Latinos overall more likely to be uninsured and to die from lack of coverage.

The editorial also points out that “the law in reality was a health care coverage reform instead of an overhaul of the health care system.”
