For the first time, Governor Walker is saying he wants to put the “exact same language” that protects pre-existing conditions under federal law in place at the state level.
He had supported a bill the Assembly passed, but it didn’t go as far as the federal health care reform law. There weren’t enough votes in the Senate to approve it. Walker also authorized the state to file a lawsuit against the federal law that created the rule for pre-existing conditions.
Democratic candidate for governor Tony Evers says Walker spent eight years fighting the federal law. He accuses Walker of talking out both sides of his mouth, and telling last-minute lies.
