Gov Walker's book has bold faced lie about 'violent protestors' http://www.bluecheddar.net/?p=36365 He's not for WI #wiunion #wipolitics #ctl #p2 #vets


...This time it’s an allegation that protesters surrounded Scott Walker’s car outside of a manufacturing plant in Wisconsin in Hudson, Wisconsin and “began beating on the windows and rocking the vehicle” and then a truck drove up to block its exit on Mar 15, 2011. Both Politico and FOX say this occurred not long after Walker announced he was removing collective bargaining rights from public workers through radical austerity legislation.

“As we prepared to leave, the state troopers saw that the protesters had physically blocked the entrance we had used to come onto the property. So they turned the squad car around and headed toward the other exit. We watched in disbelief as the throng of people rushed toward the second exit to block our path,” writes Walker, a potential 2016 presidential candidate.
“As we tried to pull out, they surrounded the car and began beating on the windows and rocking the vehicle. Just as we extricated ourselves from their grip, a truck pulled up and blocked our path, playing a game of chicken with the troopers. They turned the lights and sirens on warning them to get out of the way. Eventually he backed up, and we sped off,” he continued.

This is a lie. ......

Sebelius calls on Walker to expand Medicaid

No, fear-Walker's set in stone #teaparty ideology will not allow him to even entertain this notion.
Now Walker wants to open it up to more insurance companies!! He had his chance to work with the Fed Gov to get as many insurance companies into the exchanges as possible but he sat on his butt!! Wisconsinites will suffer because of his gross miscalculations!

Sebelius calls on Walker to expand Medicaid

President Barack Obama's top health care official urged Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker on Friday to reverse course and accept $10 billion in federal funds to help expand the state's Medicaid program.

Kathleen Sebelius, the secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, said the money would pay for costs that are currently being absorbed by taxpayers and community hospitals.

"I'm hoping the governor and Legislature will take a new look at this opportunity," she said................

While Sebelius toured the Progressive Community Health Centers in Milwaukee, Walker's office released a letter asking the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for an additional measure of flexibility in implementing the health care law. The law allows qualified residents to use tax credits to purchase a plan in the federal exchange, and Walker proposed letting people use tax credits for any insurance plan _ not just those on the exchange..............
