'Obamacare' survives: Supreme Court dismisses big challenge

Just last year, my office was before the Supreme Court defending women’s right to contraceptive healthcare under the ACA, and we will continue to fight for Pennsylvanians' access to reduced-cost, quality healthcare.

Americans have a right to access affordable healthcare--and today's ruling upholds that law of the land.

We defended the ACA in this litigation on behalf of the one million Pennsylvanians who rely on it for access to care from their doctors.

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court dismissed a major challenge to the Obama era health care law on Thursday, turning aside an effort by Republican-led states to throw out the law that provides insurance coverage for millions of Americans.

Trump Pressed Official to Wield Justice Dept. to Back Election Claims

Dangerous, seditious, action from a sitting President to undermine our democracy. It's increasingly clear we came very close to a constitutional crisis.

The former president began pressuring his incoming acting attorney general even before announcing that his predecessor was stepping down, emails show.

Trump pressures Pa. Senate GOP to approve legislative audit of 2020 election | Pennsylvania Capital-Star

Demanding this partisan sham audit to undermine our elections is not patriotic, it’s seditious. Telling the truth and speaking with moral clarity to your constituents, that’s patriotic.

We know “The Big Lie” is dangerous. It’s already led to public servants, Republicans and Democrats, receiving death threats, and inspired a violent insurrection. It can’t continue.

I won’t stand for this and am ready for the fight.

Former President Donald Trump issued a statement Friday backing a legislative audit of the 2020 election in Pennsylvania. Trump celebrated the three Pennsylvania lawmakers who visited a similar audit in Arizona this week — including state Sen. Doug Mastriano, R-Franklin — and name checked two se...
