"The Affordable Care Act is right for America and now a federal appellate court agrees that President Obama's healthcare reform is right with the Constitution. The bipartisan ruling by a U.S. Court of Appeals panel in Cincinnati today upholds the core provision in the President's visionary law that every American can be required to have health insurance. Today's ruling, with Republican and Democratic-appointed judges in agreement, is a major step toward final affirmation that healthcare reform is and will remain the law of the land."
