Madison – Senator Jon Erpenbach and Representative Daniel Riemer will hold press conference as members of Congress are debating a bill put forward by Speaker Paul Ryan that would repeal the Affordable Care Act. The Congressional Budget Office found that this bill would drastically raise premiums on senior citizens, cause 24 million Americans to lose their health insurance, and defund Planned Parenthood. The bill rations health care to the elderly, people with disabilities, low-income children and families, and pregnant women, having a profound impact on the people of Wisconsin.
This press conference will feature real stories and people from Wisconsin affected by the repeal of the Affordable Care Act.
