PRESS RELEASE: Baldwin Statement on Gov. Walker's Health Insurance Exchange Decision

PRESS RELEASE - "The people of Wisconsin sent a clear message last week that they wanted to move Wisconsin and our country forward by having both parties put progress ahead of politics.

"I joined others in reaching out to Governor Walker and made it clear I was committed to working with him to advance health care reforms that work for Wisconsin. Instead of leading and working together to move a "made in Wisconsin" health insurance marketplace forward, Governor Walker chose to pass the buck and reject the opportunity to take ownership of this issue.

"I will not let politics stand in the way of progress; that is not what I was elected to do. I remain committed to bringing people together to make health care reform work for Wisconsin. I will work to ensure Wisconsin families and businesses get what they deserve: a health insurance marketplace that provides affordable and accessible choices, strengthens Wisconsin's economic security, and moves our state forward."
