WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin today released the following statement on TrumpCare, the Congressional Republicans’ repeal plan:

“President Trump promised ‘insurance for everybody’ but TrumpCare breaks that promise by putting millions of people at risk of losing health care coverage and forcing millions to pay more for less care.

“The Congressional Republican repeal plan puts insurance companies back in charge and lets them raise deductibles and charge higher premiums. It cuts Medicaid, targets older Americans with higher health costs and puts Medicare on a quicker path to insolvency while giving tax breaks to those at the top, including insurance company CEOs.

“The people of Wisconsin did not send me to Washington to take people’s health care away and I will not support repealing the guaranteed health insurance protections and care that people have today. I will not support higher costs, fewer people with health care coverage and more economic insecurity for Wisconsin families.”
