Ultra-lib Tammy Baldwin just keeps proving how out of touch she is with Wisconsin families. Over the weekend in an interview with WISN, Baldwin said she’s “not worried” that her single-payer government-run health care plan would cost taxpayers $32 trillion, and admitted it would require massive tax increases on Wisconsin families.
As the Cap Times reports:
“Sen. Tammy Baldwin has supported Sen. Bernie Sanders’ ‘Medicare for All’ plan and single-payer health care. But just last week, a study by a libertarian policy center at George Mason University showed that such a plan could cost an additional $32.6 trillion over 10 years. Appearing Sunday on the ‘UpFront with Mike Gousha’ television talk show, Baldwin said she wasn’t worried by the big price tag…She admitted that a single-payer health care system would mean significant tax increases…”
Running on huge tax increases and socialist health care may play well her liberal friends in Washington, but the Wisconsin families who will be forced to pay for all of these big government programs are a little more than concerned. And for good reason – Wisconsin families wouldn’t just lose their current health insurance, but research shows that even paying more than double their current taxes wouldn’t be enough to foot the bill for her radical plan.
“Tammy Baldwin needs a cold dose of reality if she thinks voters are interested in more than doubling their federal taxes to pay for a $32 trillion socialist takeover of the American health care system,” said NRSC Spokesman Calvin Moore. “Tammy Baldwin’s government-run health care plan would require gargantuan tax hikes on Wisconsin families and leave them spending more money for lesser quality care. That isn’t what Wisconsin wants, but Tammy Baldwin just doesn’t get it.”
