While Gov. Scott Walker Jets to New York to Hob Nob With Billionaires to Pursue Presidential Ambitions, Low Income Wisconsinites Getting Notices They’re Losing Their Healthcare

Damning Indictment of the Priorities of Gov. Walker'

MADISON, Wis. — Today Gov. Scott Walker “jets” to New York to attend a fundraiser, hosted by Woody Johnson, billionaire owner of the New York Jets football team, for the benefit of the Republican National Committee. Meanwhile back in Wisconsin, news outlets are reporting that the Walker administration is mailing letters to approximately 92,000 Wisconsin citizens notifying them that, because of provisions in his 2013-15 state budget, they will be losing their state BadgerCare health insurance.

The following are the statements of One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross:

“It is a damning indictment of the priorities of Gov. Walker that, on the same day he is cavorting with New York City billionaires to further his own political ambitions, back home in Wisconsin a widow making as little as $11,500 a year is opening her mail to find she’s losing her Badgercare health insurance thanks to the policies of his administration.”
