Their first debate took place at the university of wisconsin- miluwakee.

Healthcare was the first topic of the night with a number of questions surrounding the affordable care act.

Baldwin supports it and saying vukmir's push to repeal it would jepordize protection for people with pre-existing conditions.

Vukmir pushed for repealing the national health care law saying she would fall in front of a truck before letting people go with out coverage for pre-existing conditions.

Things became even more heated when the tomah v-a scandal came up.

(((" ((( , " 41:26 when i think about veterans i think about how she turned her back on veterans at the tomah va it is absolutely disgraceful that for months she sat on a report that she and only she and only she had that details to the exent that our veterans were being over perscibed opiods :40 "))) 44:04 i think leah vukmir should be ashamed of herself for using a marine veteran's death for her own political gain and when i learned about over perscribing across the va system but particuarly at tomah i worked with that marine veterans family his widow, his parents to enact jason's law :27 "))) jason's law toughened opiod perscription guidelines at the v-a.

It's named in honor of a marine who died while treated at the facility vukmir is down in the most recent polls.
