MADISON - According to a report appearing Friday in the JSOnline, Gov. Scott Walker's proposed rejection of a federally funded expansion of state health programs would add some $50 million in costs to state taxpayers over the next two years, according to the Legislature's nonpartisan budget office.
The new report from the Legislative Fiscal Bureau immediately became part of the debate over Walker's budget proposal for Medicaid programs, which is currently before lawmakers on the Joint Finance Committee. The budget panel is rewriting Walker's bill and will send it to the Assembly and Senate early next month for their consideration.
The Walker administration had presented his plan as saving roughly $3 million compared to current law. However, the Fiscal Bureau said there would be an additional $49 million in costs - a swing of $52 million from Walker's estimate.
In addition, thousands more people would be covered if the state accepted the federal expansion.
"It doesn't save us money. It costs us money to have this hyper-political response to this very practical problem that we're facing," said Rep. Jon Richards (D-Milwaukee), a Joint Finance member who opposes Walker's plan.
