King County Executive Dow Constantine issued the following statement in response to a Texas federal judge's ruling on the Affordable Care Act.
This is outrageous and dangerous. Republicans are once again threatening to dismantle the health care law that made it possible for more than 200,000 people in King County to gain affordable health insurance, dramatically decreasing the uninsured rate in our region.
We must remain vigilant in the face of this latest attempt to undermine our Constitution for political gain. We will continue to fight for the health and well-being of the people of our region and our nation.
