MADISON, Wis. – Americans for Prosperity-Wisconsin (AFP-WI) on Wednesday criticized new legislation introduced by Sen. Tammy Baldwin that limits access to affordable health care options and pointed to the bill as yet another reason why Tammy Baldwin is unfit to represent the Badger State. The group also earlier today announced its first television ad buy in the Wisconsin U.S. Senate race to supplement its activists’ efforts to defeat Sen. Baldwin this November.
AFP-WI State Director Eric Bott made the following statement:
“Tammy Baldwin is trying to take away Wisconsinites’ new opportunity for accessing quality, affordable health insurance. This is typical of her big-government, Washington-knows-best approach to public policy. This effort, like so many Baldwin-backed policies, limits consumer choice and serves as an excellent example of why AFP-Wisconsin activists are working around the clock to defeat her in November.”
The Baldwin bill would overturn a Trump administration rule on short-term, limited-duration (STLD) health insurance plans, which help millions of Americans escape health exchanges to more flexible plans. Millions of Americans are trapped under the skyrocketing costs of Obamacare and they can be provided relief through expanded choice in health care markets. STLD insurance plans offer much-needed alternatives for those hurt most by Obamacare.
