Health care law's backers think drug, youth policies will stand

Supporters of the Affordable Care Act are of the opinion that some of the key provisions of the health care law will stand, despite the US Supreme Court's observation that there has apparently been an overstepping by Congress which requires almost all Americans to buy insurance.

The main provision of the Affordable Care Act include insurance coverage guarantee for sick children; discounts on prescription drugs for the elderly; community health center funding; and coverage for young adults on the insurance plans of their parents.

According to the law's backers, drug and youth policies stated in the law will stand, even though the constitutionality of the president's all-encompassing health care law has been a matter of debate for the justices.

The 2,700-page law is being closely studied by the critics and backers alike; with the opponents chiefly looking at those portions of the statute which could be worth resurrecting, and the supporters chiefly studying those provisions of the law which though less headline-grabbing have, nonetheless, improved the lives of Americans.

Expressing the hope that justices will find that the law underscores many important services which need to be protected, Ethan Rome - from Health Care for America - said that it is also possible that the court may eventually uphold the entire law because of its "extraordinary value."

Noting that the law is "rich in consumer protections and benefits," Rome said that it is "already changing the lives of millions of Americans," in a number of ways which have "nothing to do with the constitutional questions before the Supreme Court."
