Milwaukee: Tuesday October 14th at 2:30 PM, Citizen Action of Wisconsin will participated in the only public debate scheduled on the upcoming Milwaukee County referendum on BadgerCare funding.

Taking the negative in the debate will be Marquette University Political Science Professor John McAdams. Taking the affirmative on the referendum will be Citizen Action’s Lead Organizer Kevin Kane. The debate will be moderated by veteran Milwaukee journalist Bruce Murphy, the Editor of Urban Milwaukee.

This debate, which is open to the public, is hosted by Marquette University’s School or Nursing, Department of Political Science, and Department of Biomedical Sciences.

Referendums on BadgerCare funding are on the ballot around the state. An estimated 1 million voters will see the question on their ballot November 4th. The Marquette University Law Poll has consistently shown that Governor Walker’s decision to reject enhanced federal funding for BadgerCare is one of his most unpopular decisions.

The debate will get beyond the soundbites and talking points, and explore the question of what role BadgerCare should play in Wisconsin health coverage system in the new terrain created by implementation of national health care reform.
