Democratic Party of Wisconsin Statement on Amy Coney Barrett Confirmation

(WISCONSIN) — In response to the confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Executive Director Nellie Sires released the following statement:

“The confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett was yet another attack by Donald Trump on the health care Wisconsinites rely upon, including the protections for the 2.4 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions and the 150,000 Wisconsinites who get their health insurance through the exchange. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 crisis, exacerbated by Trump’s failed pandemic response resulting in 220,000 deaths, including over 1,800 here in Wisconsin, Trump is doing everything possible to take health care away from millions of people when they need it most. Trump’s White House admits they have no plan to stop coronavirus, and Trump said on the debate stage last week that we will “learn to live” with COVID-19.

“Now more than ever, health care is on the ballot, and the only way we can protect our friends and family who rely upon the ACA is to elect Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to the White House on November 3rd. Joe Biden was instrumental in passing the ACA and believes we should expand access to quality, affordable health care, not rip it away. We know that by electing Joe Biden and Kamala Harris, we’re sending leaders to the White House who will fight to make sure every Wisconsinite gets the care they need, not work to take it away.”
