Democrats are hoping that possible repeal of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare), including scaring voters over coverage of pre-existing conditions, can propel them to victory in the midterm elections. However, Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Brookfield) is going on the offensive and pushing back on U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) and her support for “Medicare-for-all,” a complete takeover of health care by the federal government that will cost $32 trillion over ten years.
Vukmir has a new ad airing on health care that describes how Baldwin’s health care plan could jeopardize the health of Theresa from Madison who suffers from a lung disease. The ad, called “Breathe,” features Theresa talking about the loss of the private insurance provided by her employer if the federal takeover of health care passes.
Text of the ad:
“It’s hard to breathe, and it’s terrifying. That’s what a rare lung disease does when it picks you.
“I wouldn’t be here without my insurance. Senator Baldwin wants to eliminate private health insurance. She wants the government to choose when I can see my doctor and what care I receive.
“Senator Baldwin is so radical, it literally takes my breath away.”
