MADISON – Today, Governor Walker announced that he will call for a special session to give mothers and other individuals he is kicking off health care more time to transition to the Affordable Care Act. Following Governor Walker’s announcement, Rep. Chris Taylor (DMadison) issued the following statement:

“Governor Walker created a mess in Wisconsin by refusing to accept more than $2.4 billion federal dollars over the next decade to expand access to health care while creating 10,500 new jobs. Instead, he chose to spend $119 million more in taxpayer money every two years to cover fewer people. As a result, Gov. Walker is kicking 77,000 people off BadgerCare, when he had the opportunity to provide coverage to them and thousands of more people. Gov. Walker created the cracks that people are falling through, but there’s still time for him to fix his mistake. I call on him in this special session to do the responsible thing and accept billions of federal dollars to provide critical health care that thousands of Wisconsinites desperately need.”
