Sample BadgerCare door script
Hi, my name is (your name), knocking doors today in support of the upcoming BadgerCare referendum.
Did you know that a referendum asking whether the state to accept billions in available federal funds for BadgerCare is on the ballot here in November?
IF THEY ANSWER YES
Great! Then you know how important it is we get out and vote yes for BadgerCare. Are you planning to vote?
If yes: Great! And be sure to tell your friends at neighbors how important it is to vote YES to BadgerCare on November 4.
IF THEY ANSWER NO
On November 4, over 1 million voters in 20 counties and cities across the state can send a message to the politicians in Madison that Wisconsin needs to accept billions in available federal funds to fill in the holes in BadgerCare. When Governor Walker chose to leave those funds on the table, over 87,000 Wisconsinites were denied access to quality, affordable health care, costing the state hundreds of millions more to cover fewer people, and raising private insurance premiums for the rest of us. We are all affected by this decision.*
That’s just unacceptable, right? (Gauge response and refer to FACT sheet for more BadgerCare talking points if needed)
I agree. The good news is Wisconsin can reverse this terrible decision and take the money at any time, so we need to send a message to Madison on November 4 to stop playing politics with health care and accept these federal funds.
Can I count on you to vote YES on the BadgerCare referendum?
If yes: Great! And be sure to tell your friends at neighbors how important it is to vote YES to BadgerCare.
If no: Ok, have a nice day. (Leave and head to the next door)
