WASHINGTON, Dec. 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Below is a statement by United States Conference of Mayors President Columbia (SC)Mayor Steve Benjamin on U.S. District Court Judge Reed O'Connor's ruling on the Affordable Care Act:
"While the Affordable Care will remain intact for now despite U.S. District Court
"Mayors across this country have seen firsthand the devastating impact of a broken healthcare system. We believe that healthcare should be viewed as a human right, not simply a privilege for those can afford access to it.
