MADISON — The following is the statement of Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning with regards to the latest developments on the Senate health care repeal bill:

“Wisconsin families are winners today as Republicans in Washington have failed again to garner support for their latest plan to strip health care insurance from millions of Americans.

“The latest cruel proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) without any replacement would have taken us back to the days where our state had over 500,000 uninsured individuals. Republicans like Senator Leah Vukmir will argue that we were ‘doing fine’ before the ACA, but families in every corner of our state who gained coverage would certainly disagree.

“While the latest attempt to repeal the ACA has failed, Republicans have shown time and again they will relentlessly pursue repeal in order to put big insurance companies back in the driver’s seat of our health care system. Democrats will continue the fight to protect the care of hard working families in our state. In 2018, the voters will choose progressives who stood up to protect their health care.”
