It's not often that a gay-bar owner chimes in on a U.S. Supreme Court decision, but here's a news release from Babak Movahedi, owner of MOVA Lounge in South Beach and Washington, D.C. (He's also an attorney, board president of Miami Beach Gay Pride and a national board member of Stonewall Democrats.)
MOVA LOUNGE CELEBRATES SUPREME COURT DECISION TO UPHOLD OBAMA HEALTHCARE REFORM LAW
MOVA Lounge, “Healthcare is an American Right and Not a Privilege”
“I am more than pleased with the Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Obama’s Healthcare Reform Law,” says Babak Movahedi, the owner and founder of MOVA Lounge, Miami and MOVA Lounge, D.C. “I have always believed that affordable healthcare and insurance is an American right and
not a privilege to be enjoyed by a select few. For years we have provided our employees with the ability to have health insurance, which is really unheard of in the bar industry. It has and will always be a priority to put the health of our employees at the forefront of our business model.
“I applaud President Obama for his efforts to provide universal healthcare to all Americans and the Supreme Court for making his dream – our dream – a reality.”
