Democrats highlight President Trump's 'broken promises on health care'
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Democratic leaders came together Tuesday, Jan. 14 to highlight what they're calling President Donald Trump's broken promises on health care.
Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett was joined by several other community leaders at Aurora Sinai Medical Center. They said during President Trump's October 2018 visit to Wisconsin, he said Republicans want to create better health care through more choice and lower drug prices.
However, they say that hasn't happened. Instead, prices have skyrocketed as his administration tries to end the Affordable Care Act.
"He loves talking about how much he hates Obamacare, but what he hasn't talked about, and what he hasn't done at all, is offer anything to replace it," said Mayor Barrett.
Local Democratic leaders say President Trump has repeatedly tried to take protections away from people with pre-existing conditions.
