Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker Rejects $37 Million To Reform Health Care
Submitted by William
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker would rather see the Affordable Care Act overturned than accept tens of millions of dollars to help the people of his state.
On Wednesday Walker said he was notifying the federal government that Wisconsin was turning down the Early Innovator Grant, saying it didn’t make sense to commit to reforms that could have a devastating economic impact…
The American Cancer Society called the Republican governor’s action a move backward.
“A robust, consumer-friendly health exchange designed specifically for Wisconsin would greatly expand access to care to those who need it most, while preserving what already works. It’s unfortunate the (Walker) administration is deciding to ignore this reality,” said Allison Miller, Wisconsin government relations director for the American Cancer Society.
