Grassley Favors Health Subsidy Extensions

Jun 23, 2015

As the U.S. Supreme Court prepares to release its decision that could invalidate health care insurance subsidies for low-income Americans under the Affordable Care Act, Iowa Senator Charles Senator Charles Grassley says Congress should be prepared to pass legislation temporarily continuing the subsidies.

“I expect the Court to rule against the President, but that’s not the fault of the low-income people getting the subsidy, so continue the subsidy. But don’t hurt the chances of making needed changes in ObamaCare including repeal and replacement.”

Grassley says if the court ruling invalidates ObamaCare’s insurance subsidy for low-income Americans, he favors a two-year temporary extension.
