‘Save My Care’ Bus Tour raises concerns over ACA repeal

Bus tour stops in La Crosse

Wisconsin state representatives joined concerned citizens in La Crosse Thursday, voicing their opposition to the Affordable Care Act repeal.

The nationwide ‘Save My Care’ Bus Tour stopped in La Crosse to take a stand against the healthcare repeal. According to tour directors, the plan from Congressional Republicans would take health insurance away from about 431,000 Wisconsin residents.

The Bus Tour is a two-month, cross-country tour focused on telling the stories of those who would be affected by a repeal of the Affordable Care Act.

“Put them out into a broader network so it can break out, because there’s so much noise around the repeal of ACA that we want people to see a face to what this is really about,” said “Save My Care” Bus Tour Director Anthony Hayes.

State Senate Minority Leader Jennifer Shilling, health care advocates, and community members spoke at Thursday’s event.
