WISCONSIN – New reporting from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reveals the extent to which Governor Scott Walker and Attorney General Brad Schimel support returning to the days where individuals with pre-existing conditions can be discriminated against by health insurance companies.

As part of their lawsuit, currently pending before a federal judge in Texas, Boulton writes that Walker, Schimel and others “did not back not back off on their request for a preliminary injunction suspending the entire law.”

“At a minimum, the states asked Judge Reed O’Connor to strike down in their states the parts of the law that prohibit health insurance companies from refusing to cover people with pre-existing health conditions or charging them higher rates.”

“Governor Walker and Attorney General Schimel want to bring back discrimination in healthcare tomorrow,” said Protect Our Care spokesman Joe Zepecki. “That’s not hyperbole, it is a cold hard truth that would affect more than 2 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.”
