Scott Walker’s Record on Health Care

When It Comes to Wisconsinites’ Health and Wellbeing, Gov. Scott Walker Knows What Should Come First - His Own Political Ambitions!


When it comes to Wisconsinites’ health and wellbeing, Gov. Scott Walker knows what should come first – his own political ambitions! On his first day in office, Gov. Walker authorized the state to join a politically motivated lawsuit against President Barack Obama’s signature Affordable Care Act.

Scott Walker has also played to his conservative base in rejecting federal funds to expand Medicaid in the state, resulting in thousands being kicked off the state Badgercare program and the state spending more overall to insure fewer individuals. His health care policy also tends to favor privatization and special interests like insurance companies over the health of Wisconsinites. And when it comes to women, Walker’s decisions about health are pure politics, catering to the pro-life base of the Republican party, at the expense of women’s lives.

SCott Walker is so extreme he has tried to roll back laws guaranteeing insurance coverage of contraceptives and even supports banning abortion without exceptions for rape, incest, or even to save the life of the mother.
