Say Yes to BadgerCare

by Kevin Kane, Lead Organizer: Citizen Action of Wisconsin

Accepting new federal health care reform dollars will expand health care freedom, create jobs, and save money

The Issue: One of the most important ways the new health care reform law expands coverage is filling the gaping holes in state Medicaid programs (BadgerCare in Wisconsin) guaranteeing coverage to low income adults. Currently, there are over 84,000 low income Wisconsinites who could be covered by BadgerCare if available federal funds were accepted. Governor Walker’s decision to reject these funds is not final and Wisconsin can accept the money at any time.

People who lack access to stable and affordable health coverage do not have a fair shot at the American dream. They face a constant threat of having their lives and careers devastated by health disasters that also become financial disasters. In the 21st Century you do not have the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness if you cannot control your own health care decisions or have the peace of mind of knowing that health care will be there when you need it.
