Jim Doyle, our Governor who would be King hasn't let the ink dry on his attempted $15 billion tax increase before he announced his next scheme dream. This plan would take BadgerCare (Wisconsin's Medicare plan)and open it up to ALL the kids in the state, no matter what their parents make. His deal would be on a sliding scale according to family income. If you're a kid and your folks make little, then they pay nothing, if they make middle class income, then they'll pay some, if they are those stinking rich folks who we're supposed to hate... then they'll pay $61/month. Apparently, King Doyle won't sleep until the government runs every industry in this state. Today the Insurance Industry, tomorrow... the world!

It's the mark of a government that resents the freedom of it's people.

So why not just give me your credit card number and let me use the money I need directly? Or is it only ok if I have the government take it from you, then give it to me? Government programs are NOT charity or welfare. Charity and welfare are voluntary contributions from one private citizen to another.

He sounds like a bedfellow of our Govenor Christine Gregorie. Who stole the govenorship through every means and lie she could and does NOTHING for Any of the citizens or voters on the east side of the state other than raise taxes for improvements and help for the west siders. We are like two states but one govenor.

Yes, they are bedfellows. Voter fraud is an institution here in Wisconsin. It is openly practiced to the point that there were more examples of fraudulent votes last election than the margin between candidates. King Doyle,and the democrats in the State Senate have blocked EVERY attempt to address the problem.

Due to cricumstances my Granddaughter had to be on Badger Care for about 2 years. She had a medical condition that we are still concerned about today. My daughter had difficulty getting to see specialist except for one hospital. This was one of the best in the nation and they sepnd a day working with her and giving her some very good suggestions.It was the first one to really listen to her and do follow up. The staff was very professional and top of their field. What Hospital - Shriners Hospital - the Cost FREE. She even had a member of the Shriners contact her to see if she needed transportation to the Hospital. There is not Health Care Crisis in the US, just a crisis of Control and dependance upon the Government. King Doyle is a good example of such desire for power and control.

Exactly! There are countless examples of what can happen when government butts out of the medical field. So much of the cost of doing business is government intrusion.

/frustrated groan and sigh /facepalm He's at it again!? Hmph. I shouldn't be surprised, but there is still that slight part of me that still gets surprised at these things. Worst part is, there are already safety nets in place for people who need the care but can't afford it. So...why more government programming? Oh that's right... political games and power! -_- A few more points for the smoke and mirrors while a state government gets bigger.

That's the thing, BadgerCare is already there for people who can't afford healthcare. All this does is create a taxpayer subsidized program for everyone else. In other words, medical insurance companies are now being forced to subsidize competition that they cannot compete with.

Don't tell me, let me guess....to do all this for the fine people of Wisconsin is going to require a larger "voluntary contribution" in the form of a sizable tax increase. Doesn't anyone have insurance these days?... Or is everyone waiting for a government handout to take care of them? When does this nutjob's term expire anyway?

At $60+ a month, how long do you think the medical insurance companies will last? If anyone tells me that the Democrats are "for the working man", I'll just laugh in their face and point to King Doyle.
