MADISON – Twelve years ago today, President Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act (ACA), opening a pathway for 31 million Americans to have quality, affordable health care coverage and providing protections for more than 133 million people living with a pre-existing condition. Despite this, twelve years later, Ron Johnson is still calling to scrap it and start all over. In the face of these threats, State Treasurer and candidate for U.S. Senate Sarah Godlewski renewed her commitment to protect the ACA and fight to expand affordable health care access for all Americans.
“The Affordable Care Act expands health care access for thousands of Wisconsin workers and families, yet Ron Johnson and the GOP are hellbent on completely eliminating it,” said Sarah Godlewski. “Every Wisconsinite deserves reliable access to quality, affordable health care, and we have to continue this fight because we aren’t going back.”
Earlier this month, Sarah blasted Ron Johnson for pledging to overturn a historic law that the majority of Americans favor. Unlike Ron Johnson, Sarah is committed to making health care more accessible and affordable — she released policy plans to expand access in rural Wisconsin and rein in soaring prescription drug costs.
