The Racine Tea Party is hosting a public forum on the implications of the affordable care act from 2 to 4 p.m. Jan. 13 at 3047 SE Frontage Rd.
The event will feature: Mike Tanner, of the CATO Institute, U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Janesville), State Rep. Robin Vos (R-Rochester), State Sen. Leah Vukmir (R-Wauwatosa), and conservative radio talk show host Vicki McKenna.
“The Racine TEA Party wants the public to understand more about this massive new law, how it affects them and what it means to block a state-run exchange,” according to the release.
President Obama pushed through the 2,500 plus page, $1.93 trillion Healthcare Law with enormous tax implications and a loss of personal choice – on a partisan vote in the middle of a recession, according to a press release by the Racine Tea Party.
The vehicle to deliver the “government-regulated and standardized” healthcare plans is a state-based healthcare exchange. Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker (along with 34 other states) said he’s blocking the implementation of a state exchange and has “defaulted” the program to the federal government.
“Every day seems to bring a new revelation about how the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, aka,” Tanner stated in the release. “Obamacare, will affect taxpayers, businesses, doctors and patients. Every American needs to know exactly what is, and is not, part of this law in order to prepare themselves for the changes to come.”
