The following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning in response to the latest TrumpCare bill release:
“After four different versions of Trumpcare it’s clear that Republican calls to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act were about politics and not about increasing access to affordable health care for all Americans.
“The latest version of Trumpcare spikes costs and strips coverage for millions of people in our country. The bill released today isn’t a health care bill, but a massive tax giveaway for millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations.
“Republicans like Senator Ron Johnson, Governor Scott Walker, and Senator Leah Vukmir’s support for Trumpcare shows they want to take us back to the days when big insurance companies made the rules, costs were sky high, and Wisconsinites went uninsured. Democrats will continue the fight to protect the care of hard working families in our state. In 2018, the voters will choose progressives who stood up to protect their health care.”
