Baldwin Finally Admits It's a Tax
Health care law represents one of the largest tax increases in American history.
Madison, WI – Recently, Congresswoman Tammy Baldwin gave an interview in which she admitted to the President’s Health Care Law as a tax. Americans for Prosperity – Wisconsin has been educating citizens on the fact that this law represents one of the largest tax increases in American history, despite denials from President Obama.
“The truth finally comes out about Tammy Baldwin’s support of one of the largest tax increases in our nation’s history,” said Luke Hilgemann, State Director for Americans for Prosperity. “The President can deny it all he wants but at least Baldwin is willing to admit that she proud to be a tax and spend liberal. While the President’s bill does nothing to lower the cost of health insurance in this country, he and Baldwin are more than happy to saddle hard working middle class families with a massive tax increase. These are the very families that have been unable to pay for health insurance in the first place.”
Baldwin’s interview with the La Crosse Tribune included the following quote, ““The idea is — let’s encourage everyone to participate,” Baldwin said. “And if they don’t, there’s a penalty that is collected as a tax by the IRS.”
“We are committed to repealing this harmful law and replacing it with market based, economically proven solutions that will reduce the cost of health care and expand its coverage,” Hilgemann said. “Our country simply cannot afford another unaccountable, expensive program that won’t live up to its promises. Soon the politicians in Washington won’t be able to fulfill their promises to the American people because our country will be broke. America was founded on the principles of free markets and competition and they remain the only proven methods for reducing costs and increasing supply.”
Americans for Prosperity – Wisconsin is currently running ads across the state encouraging people to stand up against this tax increase.
