Baldwin praises Clinton's work on expanding health coverage

U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin this evening lauded Dem nominee Hillary Clinton’s work on expanding health care coverage.

Baldwin, speaking at the Democratic National Convention with other Dem women senators, spoke of her grandparents’ struggles to get her health coverage as a child. The Madison Dem had been hospitalized for three months when she was nine years old, and her grandparents had to pay for those bills out-of-pocket, she said.

“I was considered a child with a pre-existing condition, and they couldn’t find me coverage at any price,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin said she entered politics to ensure other children could get affordable health care. And Clinton, she said, “led that fight for decades” and was key in passing the Children's Health Insurance Program while her husband was president.

“As president, she’ll fight for healthier families and a fair shot for all,” she said.
