Ron Johnson: ObamaCare will cost the average family $2,100

The two candidates sparred over health care reform. Feingold defended his vote on the law, touting benefits that include letting adult children stay on their parents' plan until they're 26 and banning companies from denying coverage on those with pre-existing conditions. "The bill is a good compromise that I think brings the country forward," Feingold said.

"We didn't need a 2,600-page bill passed in the middle of the night to address the problems that do exist in our health care industry," Johnson fired back, arguing in favor of repealing a bill that he said amounts to a government takeover and will cost the average family $2,100.
