Wisconsin Republicans just denied healthcare to tens of thousands of low-wage workers. Once again, the gerrymandered legislature ignored the opinions of 75% of Wisconsinites and removed BadgerCare Expansion from the governor’s budget. But it’s not over yet.
Citizens Won’t Budge on BadgerCare, Budget
Wisconsin’s healthcare coverage gap is perhaps most keenly felt by patients and providers at free clinics across the state. Responding to the Legislature’s decision to deny thousands of Wisconsinites healthcare, Citizen Action will host a News Conference at the St. Clare Health Mission to highlight the local impacts of this decision. Speakers will share stories, explain the risks posed by the Legislature’s decision, and identify opportunities for citizens to support BadgerCare Expansion and the Governor’s budget.
- Dr. Robert Kraig, Executive Director, Citizen Action
- Jason Larson, Executive Director, St. Clare Health Mission

WHERE: St. Clare Health Mission, 916 Ferry St, La Crosse
