  • Written by Wheeler
  • Published in News

Incoming Wisconsin Governor Tony Evers says he will push for expansion of Medicaid coverage while talking to voters statewide. 

Evers wants to add about 75-thousand low-income residents to the federally-funded program.  Exit polls showed health care was the most important issue for the voters who supported Evers in the general election.  Governor Scott Walker has consistently opposed the idea of accepting the federal funding.
