HEALTH CARE FORWARD IN WISCONSIN

Guest:  Robert Kraig, Executive Director, Citizen Action of Wisconsin

The Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) remains the law of the land for now, stated House Speaker Paul Ryan after repeal and replace legislation failed to garner enough Congressional support.  While conversation continues, questions are arising as to what impact the efforts to restructure the American health care system may have on current health care coverage. What will this mean for access to affordable health care in Wisconsin?

On this program, Robert Kraig explains how the Affordable Care Act has worked in Wisconsin since its inception and what its repeal would mean to Wisconsinites.  What are the gaps and weaknesses in current coverage, and what improvements would make health insurance more affordable and accessible to more Wisconsin citizens and economically beneficial to the state of Wisconsin?

Important questions that affect everyone, for health care is directly related to individuals and societies having the opportunity to thrive.
