State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Legislative Democrats plan to reintroduce their government health care program that had a price tag of $15.2 billion during the last legislative session. A new report by the Wisconsin Policy Research Institute (WPRI) says the plan would result in a huge influx of the uninsured.
The WPRI reports:
“An influx into the state of Wisconsin of health care–seeking persons, many of whom may have chronic, serious, and costly health care problems, would result in a significant, unbudgeted burden on Wisconsin taxpayers, as well as the possibility of reduced health care quality as measures are taken to help control cost overruns. Troubling on its own, this will be even more problematic in an era of projected multi-billion dollar deficits.”
I have opposed and will continue to oppose the Democrats’ government health care plan that amounts to the largest tax increase in the history of America.
