Dems Chime In On Walkers Proposal To Not Take Fed Dollars For Health Care
Governor Scott Walker says he will turn down a full expansion of the
BadgerCare program under the federal health care law but 224 thousand more state residents would still gain coverage through state and federal efforts. Democrat Steve Doyle disagrees with the proposal.
Other democrats are taking Doyle's side. In a statement, Senator Jennifer Shilling said Governor Walker’s short-sighted decision leaves Wisconsin’s middle class families stranded in the waiting room. Representative Jill Billings said Walker has created a complicated shell game designed to draw attention away from the fact that he is playing politics with people’s ability to get access to healthcare.
