Yes, Vukmir would vote to gut pre-existing condition protections, and she has campaigned on being The Deciding Vote to gut protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions
MADISON — Beyond the bluster and empty rhetoric, “struggling Senate candidate” Leah Vukmir has for months been quite open about her plans to gut coverage protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.
Here’s a brief look at Vukmir — in her own words — on being the key Republican vote in the U.S. Senate to pass plans that would gut protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing health conditions:
“Obamacare needs to be repealed.” —Leah Vukmir [The Vicki McKenna Show, 12/21/17]
“I’m gonna fight like heck to beat Tammy Baldwin, so that I can be that extra voice in the Senate. So, when a proposal does get passed over from the House, it doesn’t fall short in the Senate like it did.” —Leah Vukmir [The Steve Scaffidi Show, 10/16/18]
“We’re going to be that reinforcement that’s needed in the United States Senate, so that Vice President Pence doesn’t have to be that tie-breaker.” —Leah Vukmir [UW-Whitewater College Republicans event, 10/17/18]
