11/11/11 #Medicaid: Death by a 1K Cuts or 10K or More - Making It Personal

11/11/11 ... since March I have met Steven Salmon (last June) and today it seems appropriate to bring this story a little more up to date as the Walker Administration moves to make Wisconsin into a less caring place. Watch the video and understand the implications.  Only 65,000 cuts ... a few more than I thought last March!

I originally posted this on 3/7. I added the links and re-posted it today (4/16/2011) after reading the WSJ article by Steven Salmon!  Call it my example of "Six Degrees of Separation" on the human web!  I have not met Steven but I do know Ms. Bell and the Clarion.

What does Governor Walker really intend to do? He wants more flexibility (block grants) from the Federal government, which I guess means he wants to decide how to spend the money, which I guess means he will decide who is eligible and what they are eligible for. I guess that is why he is also asking the Wisconsin Legislature to turn over administrative rule writing to him!

Walker as Ruler

Forgive me, but I prefer this all be subject to public scrutiny and discussion. Do you really want all this decision making concentrated in the hands of one politician and his political appointees in a department decimated by retirements and layoffs?

1/31/2012 :  The Clarion (Madison College) seems to have reorganized it's website and this link is broken ... I did a cursory search and was not able to find it (the article) ... maybe someone else knows.  Authorship also seems to be missing ... so much for a sense of history.
