...Kevin Kane, a Citizen Action of Wisconsin spokesman who organized the rally, said organizers seek to call attention to what he calls the “emergency” the health care system will face if the Affordable Care Act is overturned or BadgerCare and Medicare are changed.
He said the “Health Crisis Ambulance Tour” traveled to various cities over the past two weeks in the state to promote its message. The group spent about 15 minutes in downtown Baraboo on its way to Tomah from Waukesha.
“Seniors, low income families, people who work for small businesses or buy health insurance on their own and more than a million Wisconsin residents with pre-existing conditions all stand to lose control of their health care decision if opponents take that freedom away,” Kane said.
He said efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act would decimate individuals and families who rely on quality health care.
“Repealing the law would be a huge blow to the health security of our citizens as well as their freedom to control their own decisions and not have their health choices dictated to them.”
Michaelis applauded Kane’s comments.
“It’s true,” she said. “There are no guarantees right now for those who are retiring or thinking about retiring from their jobs that affordable and quality health care will be available to them.”
