Baldwin defends her progress with the Affordable Care Act

Eau Claire (WQOW) –  Tuesday’s midterm election is closing in, and Senator Tammy Baldwin stopped in to meet with her supporters. Her opponent Republican Leah Vukmir said Baldwin supports a government takeover of the healthcare industry, ‘Medicare for all’, costing $32 Trillion and separating the current private insurance business.

Critics said it would take a massive tax increase to pay for that. On Saturday, Baldwin responded to this accusation.

“Too many people went bankrupt because of an illness or an injury,” said Senator Baldwin. “We changed all that with the Affordable Care Act. And my belief is that we need to work together not at partisan issues, but as a bipartisan group to strengthen the Affordable Care Act and build on it. We made a lot of progress but we have a lot more to do. And I believe we need to go forward and not backward like my opponent does.”
