Philadelphia, PA — On Friday, May 28 at 10:30 AM ET, U.S. Senators Bob Casey (D-PA) and Tammy Baldwin (D-WI) will join Governors Tom Wolf (D-PA) and Tony Evers (D-WI) for a virtual press conference to highlight the vital benefits of Medicaid expansion in Pennsylvania, as a comparison to the 14 states, including Wisconsin, that have yet to expand Medicaid, despite new federal financial incentives in the American Rescue Plan.
Senator Casey and Governor Wolf will highlight how Medicaid expansion in Pennsylvania has been a lifesaving program for many, including rural communities, communities of color, aging communities, and people with disabilities. Senator Baldwin and Governor Evers will then highlight what Wisconsin could gain from expanding the popular program, and describe how Republicans’ refusal to expand Medicaid is harming Wisconsinites. A new report from the Commonwealth Fund details the vast economic benefits of Medicaid expansion.
