The Fight is NOT over for Medicaid Expansion

August 7, 2019

On Monday, legislation to expand the Medicaid program in Wisconsin was introduced by State Representative Daniel Riemer (D-Milwaukee) and Senator Jon Erpenbach (D-West Point) at a press conference in Wauwatosa. Rep. Robyn Vining (D-Wauwatosa), who stood with this group at the press conference today in her district, issued the following statement in support:

 

“Medicaid expansion is what the people want and it’s what they deserve. 70% of Wisconsinites support Medicaid expansion, Republicans and Democrats alike...Medicaid expansion is the moral and fiscally responsible decision, and every hour that goes by the Wisconsin taxpayers lose $115,000...Furthermore, it is estimated that the cost of private premiums purchased on the marketplace will go down by 19% with Medicaid expansion...I urge my constituents to contact Speaker Vos’s and Leader Fitzgerald’s offices and call for a vote on this bill. The will of the people is the law of the land. It’s beyond time to say yes to Medicaid expansion. Let’s get it done.”
