Marathon Co. GOP, Dems speak out about health care ruling
MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW) -
Newsline 9 contacted our area parties to see what they had to say about the Supreme Court ruling on federal health care reform.
Democratic Party of Marathon County chair Jeff Johnson said many Americans are happy with the reforms and our state government should help bring these changes to Wisconsin.
"I think Governor Walker should stop playing politics with people's health care," said Johnson. "It is the law. It was upheld by the federal Supreme Court and it needs to be implemented."
Marathon County Republicans also sent us a statement. It said, "the decision has never been clearer. To reelect President Obama and Democrats is to choose huge government expansion through these legally defined taxes. To elect Mitt Romney and Republicans is to choose the repeal of ObamaCare and the continuance of limited government."
