By the end of the year, Senator Tammy Baldwin believes thousands of Wisconsinites could be without health care in the middle of a pandemic. The Democratic senator was a part of a virtual roundtable with state leaders about issues surrounding women and chidren’s health, pre-existing conditions, and young adult coverage. The conversation came the day before the Senate Judiciary Committee unanimously approved the nomination for Judge Amy Coney Barrett to be elevated to the U.S. Supreme Court. The nation’s highest court is also set to listen to arguments to overturn the Affordable Care Act on November 10th. Baldwin encourages people to speak out.
She added that the stories told during the virtual roundtable of how the Affordable Care Act has helped people were especially powerful. Baldwin says voters should study the issue of health care before they head to the polls. Republican Senator Ron Johnson is set to join us for a phone conversation on Friday.
