Ron stands with Wisconsin taxpayers against Obamacare tax credits for illegal immigrants while Senator Feingold echoes Bernie Sanders on government-run health care.
Sen. Ron Johnson, Chairman of the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Government Affairs, released a report Tuesday that alleges the federal Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) distributed as much as $750 million to half million individuals who failed to verify their citizenship or lawful presence inside the United States.
- 1. Sen. Johnson is actually holding the administration accountable and is uncovering real waste.
- 2. Despite suffering from a name identity issue, Sen. Johnson is invested in his work and is fighting for taxpayers as a committee chair.
- 3. Former Sen. Russ Feingold remains all in on Obamacare, and only lamented the lack of a public option.
- 4. Obamacare continues to raise the price of healthcare premiums on working families while dolling out hundreds of millions of dollars in tax credits without even verifying citizenship or legal status.
“On many of the issues we’ve talked about, you and Bernie Sanders would probably agree,” the host began in the video captured by America Rising PAC. “What do you think of his candidacy? Do you think that he could be the nominee? If he were the nominee, would you be comfortable supporting him?”
“I’ll support the Democratic nominee whoever it is,” Feingold responded. “I’ve worked with Bernie Sanders. He’s an honorable person, he is a committed progressive and I agree with him on many issues.”
“In fact, Bernie and I were holding out for an even stronger bill on the Affordable Care Act,” he continued. “We wanted a single-payer – we wanted an option to opt in, a public option.”
