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.
