Advantage of Being a Walker Donor

By Jeff Simpson

You can have the taxpayer care for your kids

MADISON (WKOW) -- The three children of a Columbus businessman receive their health insurance through the state's plan for low-income families, BadgerCare, despite their father's estimated worth of $20 million.

A 2011 divorce required Michael Eisenga to provide health insurance for his three young boys. The children's mother, Claire Hawthorne told 27 News Eisenga enrolled the children in BadgerCare.

What did Michael Eisenga do with his spending money?  

Records show Eisenga owns real estate and more than a half dozen businesses, including a golf course.
Campaign finance records show Eisenga has contributed a total of more than $28,000 to Governor Walker, Lieutenant Governor Kleefisch and the Republican Party since April 2010.


  1. Get real, Jeff! Don't you know that white male millionaires are the most oppressed minority in America? And their children have it even worse because white male millionaires are typically absentee fathers. These kids need health insurance just like everyone else. Can't you show at least as much empathy as Charlie Sykes or David Blaska?

    Excuse me. If you had as much empathy as Charlie Sykes or David Blaska, Eisenga's children would be living on the street hungry and shoeless. If that was the case, then they would qualify for BadgerCare.

    Instead you have the Walker administration providing the millionaire's children with BadgerCare due to graft and cronyism.

    Ahh! The future of America under Tea Party rule!

  2. So darker skin people working 2 jobs trying to support their families that can not even make as much as what was donated to Walker, get kicked off because Walker cares so much about their independence!

    Why is this not being prosecuted as FRAUD by his lynch men out to get all those abusers of the system??????????? This is the real racist Reagan Welfare Queen!

  3. Well, D'uh.

    It's only fair and consistent, isn't it?

    If it doesn't matter how much money a kid's parents make every year, for those kids to get voucher money from the state for private school, shouldn't those same kids also be allowed to jump to the front of the line (ahead of children from poor and middle class families) for health care?

  4. Well, apparently Michael Eisenga had enough money to hire Kelly Rindfleisch for his company after Walker took office 2 years ago.

    But apparently he's so cleaned out that he's now on Badgercare. Riiiiight.

    Grifting isn't easy but someone's gotta do it

  5. Hey, are not those Fitzgerald boys in the same neighborhood as this guy?

    Remember this story? :
