Baldwin Campaigns With Harris Who Wants to Abolish ICE And Supports BaldwinCare

Brookfield, Wis. — As she pushes for socialized healthcare, Senator Tammy Baldwin is campaigning Sunday with California Senator Kamala Harris who supports BaldwinCare wants to abolish the U.S. Immigration Customs and Enforcement (ICE).

“Senator Baldwin and Senator Harris are two radical peas in a pod who support BaldwinCare, which even CNN acknowledges will boot 3.4 million Wisconsinites off employer insurance for a government-run plan,” said Leah Vukmir campaign manager Jess Ward. “And if supporting socialized healthcare wasn’t bad enough, Baldwin is also standing with Harris who wants to abolish ICE, which would keep dangerous, illegal criminals in our country."

As CNN reports:

“Sen. Kamala Harris is the first Democrat to announce she'll co-sponsor Sen. Bernie Sanders' single-payer health care bill when it's introduced in September. … ‘Here, I'll break some news: I intend to co-sponsor the Medicare-for-all bill, because it's just the right thing to do,’ Harris said. She announced her support for Sanders' single-payer plan at the end of her town hall and joked that ‘somebody should tell my staff.’  Her co-sponsorship is another sign that the Democratic Party is increasingly embracing a shift away from the private health insurance market and toward a government-run program.”
BACKGROUND...
 
California Senator Kamala Harris wants to get rid of the Department of Homeland Security’s Immigration and Customs Enforcement and start from scratch. “I think there's no question that we've got to critically re-examine ICE and its role and the way that it is being administered and the work it is doing," [Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA)] told MSNBC. "And we need to probably think about starting from scratch.” (CNN, 07/03/18)
 
Betsy McCaughey is a senior fellow at the London Center for Policy Research finds that Medicare for All will end Medicare, Medicare Advantage and employer-provided health coverage.  “Sen. Bernie Sanders says that because Medicare is ‘the most popular, successful and cost-effective health insurance in the country’ everyone should have it, regardless of age.  But watch out for the bait and switch. Truth is, Sanders’ Medicare for All legislation actually abolishes Medicare and Medicare Advantage, as well as employer-provided coverage, union plans and plans people buy for themselves. Every person will be forced into a mandatory, government-run system with the phony name “Medicare for All.” Whether you want it or not. The quality of your medical care will plummet.  Medicare for All will plunge hospitals into financial distress, exposing patients to dangerous medical shortages and forcing pay cuts on health care workers. New York hospitals and their workforce will get clobbered the worst.” (New York Post, 10/16/18)

The left-leaning Urban Institute says BaldwinCare will cost $32 trillion.  “32 trillion.  That is how much federal spending would increase over 10 years under Bernie Sanders’s Medicare-for-all bill, according to a brand-new estimate from the libertarian-leaning Mercatus Center at George Mason University.  Before you question the source (like Sanders did), you should know the left-leaning Urban Institute came up with the exact same number in 2016.” (Vox, 07/31/18)
