WISGOP Releases Video on Russ Feingold’s Obamacare Troubles
Washington Insider Russ Feingold supported the federal boondoggle
[Madison, Wis.] – Today, the Republican Party of Wisconsin released a new web video that highlights comments made by Washington Insider Russ Feingold on Obamacare. Earlier this week marked the fifth anniversary of the failed law, which has suffocated small business with additional taxes and fees, and will cost taxpayers over $1.2 trillion. Feingold was instrumental in passing the Obamacare legislation – acting as the deciding vote in the U.S. Senate – and he has repeatedly gone on record praising the effort and even saying that it didn’t go far enough.
“Voters deserve to be reminded that Russ Feingold fully embraced the disastrous legislation that has contributed to our nation’s skyrocketing debt – and he played a key role in spreading the misleading rhetoric pushed by the Obama administration,” said Chris Martin, Communications Director for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Feingold even echoed the 2013 Politifact ‘Lie of the Year’ in an effort to mislead Wisconsinites and advance failed policies that hurt hard-working taxpayers.”
