Speaking of Health Care... Leah Vukmir Wants to Take Away 30M Americans' Health Insurance
MADISON -- GOP U.S. Senate candidate and state Sen. Leah Vukmir today attended a Wisconsin Health News Newsmaker event to discuss "what's next for healthcare in the state."
Here's what you need to know about Leah Vukmir and health care:
- More than half of Wisconsinites want Congress to fix the Affordable Care Act, with just 27% supporting a total repeal-and-replace plan.
- But Vukmir is running on dangerous Trumpcare plans that: gut protections for people with preexisting conditions, spike premiums and strip care away from 30 million Americans.
- Vukmir also opposes Congress' proposed bipartisan fix to stabilize health care markets following President Trump's move to end cost-sharing reduction payments -- opposition that a amounts to an endorsement of the Trump sabotage's 36 percent premium hike on Wisconsinites.
- On top of all of that, Vukmir has also endorsed cuts to Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare -- vital programs that millions of Wisconsinites count on.
