MADISON, WI – Following a proposal from Gov. Scott Walker to eliminate key provisions of the Affordable Care Act, Senate Democratic Leader Jennifer Shilling (D-La Crosse) released the following statement:

“The Affordable Care Act has worked to strengthen consumer protections, bolster patient rights, improve access and lower health care costs for everyone. Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, 16 million more Americans have access to health care coverage, over 200,000 Wisconsin residents have been able to purchase a health plan through the insurance marketplace and the level of uninsured residents is at the lowest level ever.

“Gov. Walker’s plan will end up costing working families more while largely benefiting the big insurance companies and wealthy special interests who are backing his presidential campaign. Rather than undoing the progress that’s been made, we need to keep moving forward and find bipartisan solutions that expand access to affordable health care coverage for hardworking Wisconsin families.”
