AFP Action: Bad Bill Today Keeps Doctors Away

"This much is clear: a vote for Baldwin is a vote for Washington-prescribed plans that we cannot afford, and we urge Wisconsinites to vote against her in November."

MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity Action℠ (AFP Action) on Wednesday criticized an effort spearheaded by Sen. Tammy Baldwin to limit Wisconsinites’ access to affordable health care coverage.

The vote on S.J. Res 63, which was introduced by Sen. Baldwin, came just one week after the Trump administration’s expansion of short-term health care plans went into effect – an effort to help millions of Americans who have been priced out of Obamacare’s unaffordable costs while leaving other Obamacare plans untouched.

AFP Action Senior Advisor Eric Bott issued the following statement:

“The awful truth behind Baldwin’s beltway-knows-best approach to health care policy is that she’s willing to risk patients’ access to affordable health care coverage to score political points. This resolution would have severed a much-needed lifeline to flexible and affordable insurance simply because Baldwin thinks Wisconsinites can’t make their own decisions. This much is clear: a vote for Baldwin is a vote for Washington-prescribed plans that we cannot afford, and we urge Wisconsinites to vote against her in November.”

  1. Thomas Martinsen says:

    Readers: please consider the opposite of what the AFP people tell you. Aristocrats for Perfidy (excuse me) Amuricans for Prosperity, pretends in this piece to warn of damage that Senator Baldwin allegedly threatens when her bill in fact is an effort to prevent harm to the citizens of Wisconsin.
