Tony Evers on Health Care

 

 


Fund state alternatives to ObamaCare

Georgia has one of the highest uninsured rates in the country, and many who are insured are struggling to pay for care. My budget proposal includes $76 million to implement Georgia Pathways and Access to make health care accessible for the first time to thousands and affordable for millions more by scaling back dependence on the failed promises of healthcare.gov, giving low-income Georgians a hand up, and increasing competition in the private sector to drive down costs.

Healthy Communities Initiative: increase access via Medicaid

We've already started working to make sure healthcare in Wisconsin is affordable and accessible. We signed executive orders creating a Healthy Communities Initiative and calling upon the Department of Health Services to prioritize these goals. Our budget will also seek to expand Medicaid in Wisconsin. According to the nonpartisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau, this will enable an additional 76,000 Wisconsinites to have access to affordable healthcare.

Exit Obamacare lawsuit; keep pre-existing coverage

The people of Wisconsin voted for a change this November and asked us to stop playing politics with their health care. That's why I'm directing Attorney General Kaul to withdraw from a lawsuit that would gut coverage for the 2.4 million Wisconsinites who have pre-existing conditions. I've said all along that I believe the best way to maintain protections for healthcare here in Wisconsin is to stop trying to dismantle those protections at the federal level.

Support ObamaCare; support Medicaid expansion

Q: Support or Repeal Affordable Care Act (ACA), known as ObamaCare? Accept ACA's Medicaid expansion to subsidize low-income participants?

Tony Evers (D): Support ACA. Accept Medicaid expansion to "insure thousands more Wisconsinites who are struggling to find affordable health insurance."

Scott Walker (R): Repeal ACA. Suing to oppose ObamaCare & rejected Medicaid expansion, but used ObamaCare funding to help cover state costs.
