2. "Wisconsin: Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Feb. 13, 2013, said Wisconsin will not participate ..."

From the link ...

Wisconsin: Gov. Scott Walker (R) on Feb. 13, 2013, said Wisconsin will not participate in the ACA Medicaid expansion, but will pursue its own strategy to expand health coverage across the state. In addition, the legislature's Joint Finance Committee in June 2013 voted against the expansion.

This has nothing to do with health care, Medicaid or the People of Wisconsin, but everything to do with Squat Wanker's Teabillie bona fides.
