Leah Vukmir, Scott Walker, Brad Schimel and Wisconsin Republicans up and down the ballot support gutting vital protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing health conditions

MADISON — Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Martha Laning issued the following statement on the start of oral arguments in Wisconsin Attorney General Brad Schimel’s lawsuit to strike down the Affordable Care Act’s protections for the 2.4 million Wisconsinites who have pre-existing conditions: 

“Today is a reminder that health care is on the ballot and the stakes couldn’t be higher for Wisconsin working families this November: U.S. Senate candidate Leah Vukmir, Gov. Scott Walker, and Attorney General Brad Schimel each support Republican efforts to gut protections for Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions and strip health care access away from millions of Americans. Wisconsinites deserve leadership that will fight to protect their health care options, not destroy them.”
