Case calls for Washington to make health care law work

Says we need to get past the "gladiatorial circus" and implement together

News Release from Case Campaign

Former Congressman (D-HI '02-'07) and U. S. Senate candidate Ed Case issued this statement on the Supreme Court's Ruling on the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act:

"The Supreme Court has ruled and the Affordable Care Act stands. Repeal is not a practical reality, so it's time to put the political histrionics aside and work to implement the law in the best possible fashion for all Americans.

"On the national level, we also have unfinished business in assuring accessible, affordable and quality health care for all Americans. Preserving Medicare, controlling still-escalating costs and curbing excessive litigation are among the primary areas.

"For Hawaii, the ACA will not have the same impact as the rest of the country due to our decades-old Prepaid Health Care Act. But it still contains key provisions that, if implemented properly, can improve health care in Hawaii, especially the health insurance exchanges. And it does not address the growing crisis in provider availability and services, especially on the Neighbor Islands, driven largely by crushing Medicare paperwork and discriminatorily low Medicare reimbursements.

"Like so many other national challenges, the sooner we get beyond the gladiatorial circus and get down to work together, the sooner we'll forge sustainable and workable solutions in national health care.
