With ordinary Americans increasingly struggling under the combined impact of the banking and health care crises, the Center for American Progress Action Fund is preparing to release a report detailing how the McCain health care plan would increase the burden on middle-class families in Wisconsin. The report, which will be released Wednesday at a joint press conference held by Change to Win, SEIU, Citizen Action Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin AFL-CIO, will detail the number of Wisconsinites expected to lose employer-sponsored health insurance under John McCain’s health care plan. It also details the tax hike middle class families would experience over four years under John McCain’s health care plan. Center for American Progress Action Fund Senior Fellow James Kvaal will join Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton, AFL-CIO Wisconsin President David Newby, and Citizen Action Wisconsin Director of Program Robert Craig, to discuss what the McCain health plan means for Wisconsin.
