FACT CHECK: Vukmir and Nicholson’s TrumpCare Plans Strip Care From 30M

Vukmir and Nicholson-backed TrumpCare plans gut pre-existing condition protections and take care away from tens of millions of Americans

MADISON -- At tonight’s GOP U.S. Senate candidate forum, Leah Vukmir just reiterated her hardline commitment to repealing the Affordable Care Act and replacing it with a dangerous TrumpCare plan. Kevin Nicholson is on the same page, as Vukmir -- they’re standing with the out-of-state billionaire Koch brothers’ years-long campaign to repeal the Affordable Care Act and take away millions of Americans’ health care access.

Nicholson and Vukmir also oppose Congress' proposed bipartisan fix to stabilize health care markets and correct President Donald Trump's health care sabotage that has premiums set to spike by 36 percent here in Wisconsin.

And both Vukmir and Nicholson have endorsed GOP plans to cut Wisconsinites’ hard-earned Medicare and Social Security benefits, and even threaten seniors’ nursing home coverage -- another decades-in-the-making project of the billionaire Kochs.
