Leah’s Statement on Baldwin’s $32.6 Trillion Plan for Single-Payer Healthcare
"It's outrageous. Sen. Baldwin has zero regard for Wisconsin taxpayers."
Brookfield, Wis. – Nurse and U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir released the following statement Monday upon news that Sen. Bernie Sanders‘ government-run health care — supported by Wisconsin’s ultra-liberal senator Tammy Baldwin — would cost $32.6 trillion:
“It’s outrageous. Sen. Baldwin has zero regard for Wisconsin taxpayers. We cannot afford $32.6 trillion of single-payer, government-run healthcare. Shifting the burden onto taxpayers does not make healthcare more affordable. The Bernie-Baldwin agenda will bankrupt us and undo the economic progress we’re seeing with President Trump.
“As a nurse, I know there’s a better way to do healthcare. By equipping patients with information and getting government out of the way, we can lower the overall cost of healthcare and increase quality.
“Putting government in charge will do the exact opposite for cost and quality — just look at the Tomah VA. Our patients deserve better than relying on government officials like Sen. Baldwin who disgracefully sat on a report about opioid overprescription and a veteran died because of it.”
Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record who has stood with Gov. Walker in cutting taxes and implementing bold reforms. Endorsed by the Republican Party of Wisconsin, Leah is running for the U.S. Senate to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington.
