Walker could accept 12 billion in fed. aid to fix holes in badgercare, or he can give it away.
Send Walker a Medic-Aid!
Governor Walker must make a decision by the introduction of his budget in mid-February whether or not to accept $12 billion over ten years to fix the holes in BadgerCare. Thousands currently wait on a waiting list, and if he were to accept this federal revenue Wisconsin could not only cover over 200,000 additional citizens in BadgerCare, but we would create over 10,000 jobs and save Wisconsin hundreds of millions of dollars. He needs to know that to all of us this is a big deal!
Send Walker a Band-Aid to Let Him Know Healthcare Is Important!
Join Citizen Action as we send Governor Walker band-aids (A Medic-Aid!) to help him make his decision! People are hurting and they need help. Help Walker make this decision!
For every $1 we will send him 1 band-aid with a note on why Wisconsin must accept this revenue!
You will also get the chance to send a personalized message to the Governor the accompany your band-aid message!
Send Walker a Band-Aid!
Walker will make his decision mid-February, so we have little time to waste!

Citizen Action is a great group. They have held many information sessions around the state about the health care situation.

3. It makes no sense for him to accept the money.
Badgercare saves the lives of people on the lower end of the income scale, which makes the program counterproductive in terms of adjusting the balance of Republican versus Democratic voters in the state via attrition of likely Democrats.
