Shocking New Evidence Of Tommy Thompson’s Support For ObamaCare Exposed!
Club for Growth President Chris Chocola: “Tommy Thompson joined hands with the labor unions, Tammy Baldwin, and President Obama to pass the largest expansion of government-run health care in a generation.”
Washington, DC – Club for Growth PAC today released a report exposing former Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson’s role as a board member of America’s Agenda, a labor-backed organization that fought for the passage of ObamaCare and was endorsed by Barack Obama and Tammy Baldwin.
America’s Agenda website describes passage of ObamaCare as “a breakthrough against a wall of resistance that has prevented progress in reforming health care for decades. As a result, tens of millions of Americans who had no health insurance, at all, will gain coverage under this law. Millions will have better coverage than before. The America’s Agenda federal health reform campaign had the privilege of making substantial contributions to shaping and winning passage of this historic health insurance reform law.”
Members of America’s Agenda include many of the same labor unions that are working to recall Republican Governor Scott Walker, including the American Federation of Teachers, the Service Employees International Union, and the United Auto Workers.

“The facts are clear: Tommy Thompson fought for ObamaCare alongside his allies in Big Labor,” said Club for Growth President Chris Chocola. “Tommy Thompson joined hands with the labor unions, Tammy Baldwin, and President Obama to pass the largest expansion of government-run health care in a generation. Wisconsin Republicans can do better.”
