Counties Want Medicare Funds

County leaders from around Wisconsin are stepping up to deal pragmatically with one of the worst state budget decisions in the modern history of Wisconsin. Not taking federal dollars for Medicaid. That according to Robert Kraig, Executive Director of Citizen Action of Wisconsin.

Kraig said the Governor and the Legislature are trying to slam the door on tens of thousands of average Wisconsinites who just want the freedom and opportunity to obtain affordable health care for themselves and their families.

Monica Kruse, La Crosse County Supervisor and Chair of the county’s Health and Human Services Board said the taxpayers of this state deserve better. She also said refusing to cover hundreds of thousands of Wisconsinites when its in our ability is immoral. La Crosse County is one of the 20 that have passed resolutions calling for accepting federal Medicaid dollars.
