Walker on Medicaid Rejection
“I want people to no longer be dependent.”
Gov. Scott Walker explained why he rejected $119 million in federal aid offered to Wisconsin through ObamaCare’s Medicaid provision: “I don’t think the measure of success in government is how many people are dependent on the government,” he said. “I want people to no longer be dependent, because we empower them to get good jobs, family support and careers in the private sector, and that’s part of our philosophy.” That was also the philosophy of America’s Founders whose intention was to liberate individuals from centralized power. Fulfilling the appetite of the Left’s constituencies rests on coercion through entitlement handouts. Walker may have taken a heavy scolding from progressive elitists for promoting fiscal accountability and limited government, but his vision reflects constitutional barriers purposely put into place.
