Three potential Senate candidates today admitted they would have voted with Washington Republicans to advance a bill that would drive up the costs of Wisconsinites’ health care and impose an age tax on Americans while the wealthiest few get a tax break. From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
“[Eric Hovde] said he would “absolutely, 100%” vote to launch debate on repealing Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act… Hovde came in second in the 2012 Republican primary to run against Baldwin and plans to decide this fall on whether he will run again.
“Also considering a run is business consultant Kevin Nicholson, who has the support of a super PAC that has raised $3.5 million. In a statement, he said he hoped the Senate would repeal Obamacare.”
“In an appearance last month on WISN-TV’s “Upfront with Mike Gousha,” Vukmir called an initial health care proposal by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) a “great starting point.”
“State Rep. Dale Kooyenga (R-Brookfield), a fourth possible candidate, could not immediately be reached on Tuesday. He told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel last month that his preference would be to entirely repeal Obamacare but that he would be willing to support McConnell’s proposed health care changes because his plan was ‘better than the status quo.’”
