trumpcareMADISON - Last night, Trump admitted that he’s coming for Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security if reelected in 2020.

These programs are important for hundreds of thousands of hardworking men and women across the state, and taking them away would have serious consequences. Take it from Denise, who worries that Trump will take away her benefits.

The Supreme Court also announced this week that it will hear a lawsuit seeking to overturn the Affordable Care Act later this year. This deserves attention here in Wisconsin, seeing as 2.4 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions could be charged more or be denied coverage completely.

The truth is, “Disease doesn’t know if you have a D or an R next to your name — it doesn’t care about politics.” Jarrett knows this first hand: his parents, lifelong Republicans, were reluctant to sign up for the ACA. Fortunately, they signed up at the last minute and it saved their family from financial ruin. Read his piece here.

Earlier this week, women small business owners gathered in La Crosse to talk about whether or not the Trump Administration’s economic policies are working for them. Penny Fassler, a local business owner, said she has not seen any tax cuts since President Trump imposed his tax plan. Instead, she sees tax breaks going to big corporations.

Penny’s right. In fact, by 2027, 83% of the Trump tax law’s benefits will go to the top 1%, while many small businesses have seen their taxes go up.

If you’re interested in hearing from Wisconsinites whose lives have been made better by the ACA or who feel that Trump’s economy just isn’t working for them, please don’t hesitate to reach out.

Best, 
Cassidy
