scott-walkerWalker Denies His Responsibility to Safeguard Health Care for Over 184,000 Wisconsinites on right-wing talk show. Local Data on Impact Released by Citizen Action of Wisconsin.

WISCONSIN - Governor Scott Walker attempted again on Wednesday to wash his hands of any responsibility for protecting health care coverage for over 184,000 Wisconsinites at risk because of a U.S. Supreme Court case that will be decided this spring.

Walker’s latest statement came at a right-wing talk show event in Brookfield, according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

Citizen Action of Wisconsin is providing numbers which quantify the potential impact of an adverse Supreme Court decision for each major city in Wisconsin, should Governor Walker fail to act (see charts below).

The case of King v. Burwell could strip health insurance subsidies in states like Wisconsin which did not set up their own Affordable Care Act marketplaces. This could increase premiums on average over 300%. If Wisconsin were to create its own health insurance marketplace, there would be no threat to health coverage.

Governor Walker bears a special responsibility for the potential disaster because he forced tens of thousands off of BadgerCare and onto the federal marketplace. In addition, many Wisconsin consumers on the health insurance marketplace have pre-existing conditions and faced shocking discrimination from insurance companies before the passage of health reform.
