MADISON– On this day in 2017 President Trump accidentally told the truth about his toxic health care agenda — calling his own health care bill “mean.” He later confirmed the comments during an interview on “Fox and Friends”.

Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler: “Two years ago today, for once, Trump told the truth: his attack on health care was just plain mean. Trump’s number one priority as president has been to gut protections for preexisting conditions, promote junk insurance plans that raise costs while cutting coverage, and enrich big insurance companies at the expense of hardworking Wisconsinites.

“At a time when Republicans in Madison are blocking Medicaid expansion, this anniversary is yet another reminder that when it comes to health care, Trump and the GOP can’t be trusted to look out for the interests of hardworking Wisconsin families.”
