Gov. Scott Walker proudly defends his decision to reject hundreds of millions of federal dollars to pay for expanding Medicaid coverage.
But polls show most Wisconsin residents believe he made the wrong choice and his Democratic gubernatorial opponent Mary Burke decries the move as irresponsible.
How Walker approached Medicaid offers a clear contrast with Burke, who said she would undo Walker's policies and take the money.
The most recent Marquette University Law School poll showed the race in the Nov. 4 election is tied. That same poll showed 59 percent of likely voters would like the state to accept the federal Medicaid money, while 30 percent agree with Walker in rejecting it.
