U.S. Conference of Mayors

"The United States Conference of Mayors commends the decision by the United States Supreme Court to uphold the fundamental tenets and intentions of the Affordable Care Act to make health care available and affordable to all who need it.  

"The Conference of Mayors has long been on record as supporting affordable health care for all Americans, and has supported this law from the beginning, as well as throughout the legislative process.  This is a win for the American people, the millions of people already covered, and the millions more that will be covered in the future.  For our cities, which typically shoulder burden of the uninsured and underinsured, this marks a tremendous victory for our most vulnerable citizens including parents with children and seniors." 

The U.S. Conference of Mayors is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are nearly 1400 such cities in the country today, and each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor.
