When Republicans tried to push through Graham-Cassidy last year, a law that would have undermined pre-existing conditions protections, Scott Walker called it “awesome” and a “winner all the way around.”He even floated letting insurershike premiums for people with preexisting conditions if federal law was changed to allow it.
His animosity towards the ACA exists to this day. Walker signed off on a lawsuit that, if successful, would gut protections for people with pre-existing conditions.
The law protecting Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions: “A disaster”
Previous Republican attempts to gut those protections: “Awesome”

“Scott Walker has been attacking protections for people with pre-existing conditions for as long as he’s been governor,” said DPW Spokesperson Alex Japko. “Walker can try to duck this issue all he wants, but his record speaks for itself. He’s failed to defend Wisconsinites’ health care in the past, and he can’t be trusted to do so in the future.”
