Washington, D.C. – This afternoon, outgoing Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker signed legislation preventing the duly elected incoming Democratic Governor and Attorney General from withdrawing from the deeply unpopular Walker-Schimel-Trump assault on the Affordable Care Act and pre-existing conditions in federal court. In response, Brad Woodhouse, executive director of Protect Our Care, released the following statement:

“Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans don’t care about protecting their constituents’ health care, the rule of law, or the will of the people. After being trounced at the polls precisely because of their of their anti-health care agenda, despite their last ditch false promises to protect people with pre-existing conditions, they went ahead and rammed through legislation designed to take away Wisconsinites’ coverage while refusing to pass legislation to protect those individuals with pre-existing conditions. 2.4 million Wisconsinites could lose their health insurance and Scott Walker and his band of phony cronies could not care less. This is far from over.”
