Today, Citizen Action will join state representative Daniel Riemer (D-Milwaukee) in Madison to officially introduce legislation co-authored with state senator Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton) bringing millions in federal funds for BadgerCare to Wisconsin!
Media outlets are reporting a key conservative leader on the budget writing committee has changed his mind and is advocating for accepting the BadgerCare funding. Now it’s on us to seize this moment and secure the final votes needed to win.
Every day that goes by without accepting the funds for BadgerCare leaves tens of thousands of our neighbors needlessly exposed without health coverage!
The Iowa BadgerCare Fix means the same mix of public and private insurance we have in Wisconsin now, except by accepting the federal funds we can make insurance coverage actually affordable for families.
The non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau reports that Wisconsin would save hundreds of millions in the upcoming budget by accepting the federal funds - enough to prevent most of the $300 million cut to the UW system!
This could be a turning point! We need your to contact your state legislators and urge them to support the BadgerCare Iowa Fix!
All the work we've done together has brought us to this point. We need your help to win.
