MADISON – Governor Scott Walker released the following statement after the Wisconsin State Legislature’s Joint Finance Committee approved Governor Walker’s Health Care Stability Plan with bipartisan support.
“Since Washington has failed to act, Wisconsin will lead. Our plan will provide stability to people in Obamacare’s individual market who are facing shock premium increases by lowering premiums by 13% in 2019 and 12% in 2020. This will help people like Kristine from Brown County who saw her premiums go up by almost $2,000 a month - a 120 percent increase! These costs are unsustainable and unacceptable. I thank members of the committee for their bipartisan support and for moving our Health Care Stability Plan forward.”
