Wisconsin Congress Health Care Vote Split By Party Lines


WISCREPORT.COM (05/04/2017) – Wisconsin’s congressional delegation voted along party lines on House health Bill designed to replace Obamacare. The House voted to pass the bill 217-213, Thursday, May 5, 2017. Wisconsin’s Republican representatives, Paul Ryan, Jim Sensenbrenner, Glenn Grothman, Sean Duffy and Mike Gallagher, voted in favor. Democratic representatives Mark Pocan, Ron Kind and Gwen Moore, voted against it. Pocan (above-left) says the bill is a disaster for Americans, will cause many to lose healthcare, or have costs increase. Gallagher (above-right) says, although the House bill is far from perfect, under this bill Wisconsin will have even more flexibility to cover its most vulnerable populations. Now, the plan goes to the U.S. Senate, where it likely will receive alterations before being voted on there. – WISCREPORT NEWSBRIEFS
