Talk about despicable. Family Care provides critical assistance to approximately 35,000. Scott Walker, however, is more concerned with the taking away of collective bargaining rights and his upcoming recall than the livelihoods of people with disabilities.
Walker’s proposed July freeze on Family Care enrollment illustrates just how callous he is. This freeze does nothing more than leave families who need assistance out in the cold. The proposed savings Walker offers are nothing but a myth designed to further his personal political agenda. Family Care costs an average of $1,800 a month, while the institutionalized care Walker proposes would further burden the disabled to the tune of $4,000.
In his victory speech Walker emphatically stated, “Together we can put the government back on the side of the people again.” So far his term has done anything but that. The Cap Times delves further into the Walker’s Family Care travesty.
