Gov. Walker's statement on Senate's passing of Medicaid delay bill

Madison (Press Release) – Governor Scott Walker released the following statement Thursday after the Senate's concurrence of Special Session Assembly Bill 1, which addresses the failed federal rollout of the Affordable Care Act:
It is irresponsible to force some Wisconsinites to pay the price for the federal government's failure. I am pleased the Senate and Assembly passed this legislation, which will give our fellow Wisconsinites additional time to make a logical transition. In 2014, everyone living in poverty will be covered—for the first time—under Medicaid in Wisconsin. No more waiting lists, and no more enrollment caps. Wisconsin's unique solution to health care will ensure everyone in our state has access to health care. I look forward to signing this bill into law tomorrow.
