SPEAKER-ELECT VOS STATEMENT ON HEALTH CARE EXCHANGES
Madison...State Representative Robin Vos (R-Rochester) released the following statement regarding Governor Walker’s announcement on the future of health insurance exchanges in the state of Wisconsin:
"I support Governor Walker's decision. By not creating a state health insurance exchange we're protecting Wisconsin taxpayers from what could ultimately become a major financial catastrophe.
"I vehemently oppose Obamacare as it is a major step toward socialized medicine which I am against. The individual and their doctor should make health care decisions not government bureaucrats.
"The reality is, like it or not, Wisconsin will have an exchange. I'm pleased that Governor Walker had the best interest of Wisconsin taxpayers' in mind when he made this decision."
