Anderson for Governor: Walker Wants Millions to Bail Out Obamacare
Fitchburg, WI, January 23rd, 2018 – In what is clearly a panic move in response to recent GOP electoral setbacks, Scott Walker is proposing a series of interventions in the health insurance market that are aimed at propping up the failing Obamacare program.
Walker wants to spend $50 million in state tax money another $150 million in the form of a Federal giveaway to bail out health insurance companies and continue to duplicate Medicare Part D with a state program. Walker claims he will pay for the state portion with unspecified cuts to Medicaid.
“If the health insurance market is destabilized it is 100% because Madison and Washington broke it,” said Phillip Anderson, candidate for the Libertarian Party nomination for Governor. “It’s becoming clear that this bungled attempt to control healthcare is now a bipartisan disaster.”
Walker’s new proposal for health insurance giveaways follows a GOP budget that increased spending on schools, and a $4.5 billion taxpayer giveaway to Foxconn.
“Madison politicians on both sides of the aisle are joining forces, not to fix Wisconsin’s problems, but to find new and innovative ways to wreck markets and spend tax dollars to ensure their re-elections,” said Anderson. “And of course, they are moving quickly to protect insurance companies, as they do with all their sponsors.”
