Governor Walker on Healthcare
Governor Walker has asked lame duck Governor Doyle to suspend all provisions of the health care reform act. This is kind of like the train money. It is a federal law, which I believe always trumps state law or in this case Governor suggested. So what the Governor would like to do is roll back the provisions that are insuring children to age 26, allowing that children with pre-existing conditions to get insurance coverage, and others with pre-existing conditions to buy into high risk pools. And his plan to fix this broken system for the people in Wisconsin....silence. Why the silence? This is what the people want, no health care reform. So what if your kid can't get a job and is now without insurance? So what if your kid is not covered because of a pre-existing condition? That is just the way it going to be. Thank you Gov. Walker for ensuring that the State becomes a small government/ no regulation experiment.
