FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 1, 2018
Madison, WI–With just five days to go and health care as the most important issue to Wisconsin voters, today Scott Walker told his latest lie about protections for the 2.4 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions. Despite spending the past eight years trying to eliminate the ACA and its protections for pre-existing conditions–and despite currently suing the federal government to eliminate the ACA–today Walker suddenly said he would enact the “exact same” protections as the law he’s trying to get rid of.
In response to this desperate flailing, Tony Evers issued the following statement:
“Actions speak louder than words, folks. Politicians like Scott Walker are always talking out of both sides of their mouth and telling last-minute lies like this. The fact is that Scott Walker spent the past eight years trying to repeal the Affordable Care Act and its protections for pre-existing conditions. I’m going to protect coverage for people with pre-existing conditions, and Wisconsinites trust me on this issue because that’s what I’ve said since day one. I’ve never played politics with our healthcare, and I won’t as governor, either.”
