Government-run plan would cost trillions
[Madison, WI] — Senator Tammy Baldwin is campaigning today in Wisconsin with far-left Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. Both candidates have embraced a $32 trillion government-run health care plan that would end private health insurance for hard-working families – making them foot the bill with higher taxes to pay for it. Leah Vukmir is a nurse who will fight to keep health insurance costs low, protect those with preexisting conditions, and bring the Wisconsin way to Washington.

Leah Vukmir: Baldwin’s Health Care Plan is “Chaos-For-All”

Sen. Tammy Baldwin likes to say, “Health care is personal.”
As a nurse, I couldn’t agree more, but Baldwin’s quote baffles me given she is proposing a one-size-fits-all plan for health care that has government determining what care you can receive when. That’s the opposite of personal.
Wisconsin families deserve access to health plans they can afford that fit their needs and cover pre-existing conditions. Unfortunately, affordability and individualization are not possibilities under Baldwin’s plan.
Here’s what the media won’t tell you: If Baldwincare becomes law, Medicare will be dismantled for our seniors and many options Wisconsinites now enjoy on the insurance market will cease to exist.
When you get sick, who would you rather deal with — a doctor or a government administrator? And when you need a surgery, what would you rather do — get the treatment you need or be added to a waiting list?
Baldwincare is wrong. It’s extreme, it’s dangerous, and it’s certainly not “Medicare-for-all.”
Wisconsin needs a senator who understands health care and is willing to enact reforms that put patients first and in charge of their own decision-making. I’ve made it my life’s work as a nurse to fight for patients, and I won’t stop now.
