"I am pleased that the Supreme Court has upheld the Affordable Care Act, which will help all Oregonians, including the 600,000 Oregonians who are uninsured, have better access to health coverage," Kitzhaber said in a statement issued after the decision. "It's a vindication of the Obama Administration's bold approach.
