World-class healthcare for everyone
Mandy believes that access to quality, affordable healthcare is a human right. Far too many families face financial ruin right here in Wisconsin because of medical bills, or worse yet, don’t seek medical services for fear of bankruptcy. While accessibility has improved at the federal level, Republican leadership in Wisconsin has refused federal funds repeatedly on ideological grounds.
Accepting the federal Medicare funds would be an incredible boost to Central Wisconsin’s economy as we educate, employ, and expand healthcare access for tens of thousands of people in Central and Northern Wisconsin. We’ve already passed up a billion of our federal tax dollars that could directly help our families and economy deal with crisis like mental health, drug and alcohol abuse, obesity, dental health, and more. Political posturing must be put aside so that we can work together for a more prosperous future.
