Today, Gov. Tony Evers called the Legislature into a Special Session with
an offer that no reasonable person would refuse. His bill to expand
eligibility for the state BadgerCare program would bring affordable
healthcare to more 90,000 Wisconsinites AND free up over $1 billion
dollars in federal funding to help the state.
From saving good paper mill jobs in Park Falls to neighborhood
revitalization in Green Bay to replacing lead pipes and fixing roads
across the state, Gov. Evers has plans to invest that money in our
communities, making us healthier and creating good jobs across the state.
Unfortunately the Republican legislators who control the legislature were
listening to their party bosses instead of common sense and their
constituents. They refused to debate or vote on Gov. Evers’ plan today,
quickly opening and then closing their session in seconds.
While today was a missed opportunity, our fight for common sense,
affordable health care and good jobs is far from over.
That’s why we’re asking you to call your elected representatives in the
Senate and Assembly at 1-800-362-9472 and let them know that BadgerCare
Expansion is the investment that Wisconsin needs to care for our neighbors
and create good jobs in our communities.
