MADISON - After weeks of playing coy, Senator Ron Johnson today cast one of the last two votes to move forward with debate on the latest disastrous Trumpcare idea to repeal the Affordable Care Act without any plan to protect the health insurance of hundreds of thousands of hard-working Wisconsin families.

When Senator Ron Johnson woke up this morning, he had no idea what version of the bill he would ultimately be voting for. Ahead of the vote, Senator Johnson told reporters on Capitol Hill, “I don't have a clue what we're gonna be voting on." Yet, Senator Ron Johnson still voted to continue the process to take away health care from up to 32 million people.

Senator Ron Johnson isn't listening to the people he represents by voting to advance the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and strip health care insurance away from hard working Wisconsin families," said Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesman Brandon Weathersby. "Republicans must stop abandoning everyday families. Instead, they should work with Democrats on a bill that abandons repeal, abandons cuts to Medicaid, abandons tax cuts for the wealthy, and is done in regular order and not behind closed doors."

seniorsCall or email WI Senators Ron Johnson and Tammy Baldwin to urge them to vote NO on these bills!


MADISON - URGENT!  Our friends at Kids Forward (formerly Wis. Council on Children and Families) has alerted us that Tuesday the U.S. Senate will decide whether to move forward with their unpopular health care bill or vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act with no plan to replace it. Either option would result in thousands of Wisconsinites losing their health coverage:

-- The Better Care and Reconciliation Act (BCRA) would leave millions of Americans without access to affordable insurance, strangle Medicaid over the next decade, and likely weaken employer-based coverage.

-- The Obamacare Repeal Reconciliation Act (ORRA), which would repeal the Affordable Care Act without replacing it, would be even worse for Wisconsin. 

Please call or email our WI senators and urge them to vote NO on these bills!

PutinDuffy told Fox News host Martha MacCallum "And my concern, Martha, is what the hell are we investigating?"


MADISON - As Attorney General Jeff Sessions begins to testify to rebut the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey, Rep. Sean Duffy doesn't seem to know what the Department of Justice is investigating in the first place. 

During an interview with Fox News, Rep. Sean Duffy told host Martha MacCallum "And my concern, Martha, is what the hell are we investigating?" In the same interview, Duffy also asked, “Why are we going through this charade of an investigation when there’s no evidence that Donald Trump had anything to do with the Russians?”
