Tom Daschle: ‘I Am Thrilled,’ ‘Huge Victory’ for ‘Health Care in the United States’

‘It’s a huge victory not only for the legal interpretation but for what it means for the future of health care in the United States’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

BLITZER: "You must be thrilled, senator, by what the United States supreme court has decided today." 
DASCHLE: "I am thrilled, wolf. This is a huge victory. You have characterized it very well. I think really what it does is put this whole debate about whether the affordable care act is going to be here to stay to rest. This is the final blow for opponents. There is no real possibility from here on out that either through the legal or the political process they are going to be able to repeal the affordable care act going forward. So it's a huge victory not only for the legal interpretation but for what it means for the future of health care in the United States."
