What a week, everyone!
The Supreme Court affirmed this week what we’ve known all along:
- The Affordable Care Act gives all Americans access to more affordable, comprehensive health insurance.
- Everyone should have the right to marry the person they love.
Just for today, let’s start with a little bragging: Massachusetts was the first state in the country to issue marriage licenses to LGBT couples, and we passed comprehensive health care reform nearly a decade ago. Anyone who wants to see the future should take a look around Massachusetts.
Today’s a day for celebration, but don’t forget: The Republican leadership isn’t giving up. Listen to their presidential candidates: They will never stop fighting to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and many make it clear they won’t accept today’s marriage ruling as final.
We celebrate, but we keep fighting for a world where all people have a chance to get ahead, where all families matter, and where all people feel safe and welcomed and can thrive.
