(MADISON, WI) — In response to yesterday’s 5th Circuit Court decision that jeopardizes the health care of millions of Americans, Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Ben Wikler released the following statement:
“The 2018 elections were a referendum on Donald Trump and his broken promises to lower health care and prescription drug costs and protect people with pre-existing conditions. Wisconsin Democrats won every single statewide seat and picked up an assembly and state senate seat that had formerly been safe Republican seats. The president’s continued assault on our health care system, and his endorsement of yesterday’s court decision, has put health care front and center in the upcoming election where Trump will have to explain to Wisconsinites and the American people why his only plan to fix our health care system is to take coverage away from those who need it most.
“Wisconsin Democrats will continue to fight against Donald Trump and the GOP’s monstrous attacks on everyday people who are simply trying to live healthy and fulfilling lives. We are going to make sure every voter in this state is aware of the President’s broken promises and the steps he has taken to try to take away their health care. And Democrats will never stop fighting to make sure that everyone has the health care they need, as a human right rather than as a privilege.”
