Rep. Kind Unveils Plan to Improve Health Care for Wisconsin
La Crosse, WI – Today, U.S. Rep. Ron Kind unveiled a plan to improve health care for Wisconsin. The announcement comes on the heels of Congressional Republicans’ failure to repeal Obamacare and the pressing need to work together to stabilize and fix the health care system.
“Over the last six months, Wisconsinites have faced far too much uncertainty when it comes to their health care. It is time to work together and recognize what works in health care, fix what doesn’t, and lower health care costs for all Americans. My plan lays out common sense proposals that would improve health care for Wisconsin,” said Rep. Kind.
Rep. Kind’s plan to improve health care for Wisconsin consists of four main principals:
- Stabilize the insurance markets
- Reduce costs for individuals and small businesses
- Address rising drug prices
- Continue delivery system and payment reform
For months Rep. Kind and his colleagues in the New Democrat Coalition have been pushing Republican leadership to work on reforms and policies that will stabilize the individual market and make health care more affordable for American families.
