Bill Kaplan speaks at Citizen Action's web site:
Trump called the Affordable Care Act (ACA) “a complete and total disaster”, issuing a decree to begin unraveling the ACA. Then Trump’s henchmen reduced enrollment advertising and publicity. All the while Wisconsin GOP Governor Scott Walker kept up his relentless drumbeat to discredit and repeal the ACA. Paul Ryan joined the confab, saying the ACA was in a “death spiral”. Bottom line – Trump, Walker and Ryan want to keep their taxpayer supported health care coverage, while repealing the ACA and throwing the sick onto the streets. Nearly 30 million regular folks, including 431,000 Wisconsinites, would lose health coverage (Urban Institute).
