STOP calling republicans "Conservatives":
According to a new study, Wisconsin will lose $1.8 billion in 2022 by rejecting federal funds to pay for expansion of its Medicaid program.
While that pales in comparison to the $9.2 billion Texas will lose as a consequence of rejecting federally funded Medicaid expansion, or the $5 billion forgone by Florida, it roughly equals the amount the state will pay that year in incentives to attract private businesses to the state.(edit note: are you seeing the theme?)
And the kicker: Wisconsin residents will still pay federal taxes that go to fund Medicaid expansion in other states
It just does not fit anymore!
