DPW: Statement on Scott Walker’s empty promise to protect Wisconsinites’ health care

Contact: Alex Japko, alexj@wisdems.org

Just now, Scott Walker said that he would call a special session “if something were to change” to federal law protecting people with pre-existing conditions.

What Walker doesn’t acknowledge: the fact that a lawsuit he signed off on is the greatest present threat to those protections.

DPW released the following statement in response to his empty promises and twisted logic:

“For nearly eight years, Scott Walker has been dead set on undermining protections for people with pre-existing conditions and has no credibility on the issue going forward,” said DPW Spokesperson Alex Japko. “If Walker was serious about protecting Wisconsinites’ health care, he would have done so years before it became a huge political liability. This latest promise is just more squirming from a governor who knows his record on health care is indefensible.”
