MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Michigan’s senior U.S. Senator is hailing the U.S. Supreme Court decision which upheld most parts of the Obama administrations national health care reform law.
Senator Carl Levin says although the debate has intensified following the ruling, and U.S. House Republicans are planning a vote to repeal the “affordable care act,” that won’t happen. Levin says the most controversial provision — the individual mandate that all Americans have health care — is not unreasonable.
Levin says 85-percent of Americans, who already have health insurance, will be unaffected since the penalty, or tax, will only be assessed on those who do not have coverage.
