Statement of Progress Florida Executive Director Mark Ferrulo: 

"Today the Supreme Court decided the fate of more than six million Americans and more than a million Floridians, ensuring they will continue to be able to afford quality health coverage.

"This historic decision benefits more families in Florida than anywhere else in the nation. More than a million Floridians will continue to save over three thousand dollars each through tax credits and cost-sharing reductions that enable them to afford health coverage.

"Now is the time for Gov. Rick Scott and his allies in the legislature and in Congress to end their efforts to undermine the Affordable Care Act once and for all."
