“Can you really get Healthy Wisconsin passed? We need the plan now.” At summer parades and picnics, in the cafes and through call-in radio shows, the message to me is the same “Can you really get this job done? We need it now.”
Healthy Wisconsin: Your Choice, Your Plan is comprehensive health care reform that provides the same benefits that I have as a state legislator to every man, woman and child not covered by a public program (like Medicare). The plan was recently passed by the state Senate and now awaits action by the state Assembly.
The plan’s passage has created a groundswell of support among average citizens but is not without its detractors. Separating fact from fiction has become a full time job for this rookie state senator.
