Local News

Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – Today marks 11 years since the Affordable Care Act, the legislation aimed at expanding health care for Americans was signed into law by then-President Barrack Obama.

Tuesday, Governor Evers joined the advocacy group protects our care on a virtual discussion to discuss the plan and how they say it’s helped Wisconsinites.

Evers also addressed how the a-c-a has played an active role during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“You know, this pandemic has been very difficult for everybody, but it’s brought so many issues to focus on. More than anything, it has underscored the emergency – and urgency – of improving the health care system and making sure that even more families are able to access care. So, I’m real proud of what we’ve been able to do and accomplish over the past few years here in Wisconsin,” said Evers.
