Well, this didn't take long. Pay particular attention to the last line of this release:
Uninsured Residents Outraged by Gov. Walker’s Refusal of Federal Funds
Rally Today with Rep. Mandy Wright
WAUSAU– Incensed by Governor Walker’s choice to say no to $12 billion in federal funding to expand BadgerCare and insure over 200,000 Wisconsinites, those on the BadgerCare waitlist, faith leaders, and activists will rally at 1 pm today with Rep. Mandy Wright to express their outrage over his decision.
By rejecting $12 billion in federal funding to expand BadgerCare, Gov. Walker is denying healthcare to people like Shalaina Aaron, Wausau, who faces multiple health issues without insurance and plans to attend the event.
Aaron is number 67,539 on the BadgerCare waiting list, which now tops 140,000 people who would have received healthcare coverage if Gov. Walker accepted the federal funds.
Walker’s refusal guarantees that thousands of low-income adults in Wisconsin will slip through the cracks and remain uninsured. Tsilos Schoener, Wausau, is another of thousands denied healthcare security and peace of mind by Gov. Walker’s refusal who plans to attend the event.
The rally marks the start of activist pushback against the governor’s decision. Events are slated statewide with rallies in Milwaukee, Madison, and Racine throughout the day.
WHEN: Thursday February 14
WHERE: St. Paul’s United Church of Christ
426 Washington St., Wausau
Great visuals of uninsured individuals affected by Gov. Walker decision, faith leaders and community activists with signage. (Emphasis mine).
In plain english: Helllooooooo TV....we have all sorts of pathetic victim types at which you can point your cameras! Come and get it! And they'll respond the way my dog does when she hears me tear open a new bag of treats. The person who shared this release with me pointed out how a lib like Wright has no problem mixing government with religion at times like this. Good point. And Media Trackers has more here on the over the top response from the left on Walker's Medicaid decision.
