Governor Scott Walker, who signed off on a lawsuit to dismantle the Affordable Care Act and its protections for pre-existing conditions, has recently taken to preposterously telling Wisconsin voters that he wants to protect provisions of the very law he is seeking to overturn. But according to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, “Walker gives no details on how state would ensure pre-existing coverage if Affordable Care Act is suspended.”
Earlier this week, Tony Evers called on Walker to protect Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions by dropping the state’s lawsuit. Walker has declined to do so.
“Walker’s been caught red-handed in one of the most absurd political two-steps in history,” said DGA Press Secretary Melissa Miller. “Walker has spent his eight years as governor working to undo the Affordable Care Act’s protections for preexisting conditions. Voters know whose side Walker is really on and see right through his pathetic campaign season claims.”
