Pro-Walker Electioneering Group Gets $1 Million Contribution From Wisconsin Couple

Are they trying to block future access by opponents or drive up the price or both?
MADISON, WI — According to a report in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, a media firm that has already purchased $2 million in television airtime this year on behalf of the Republican Governors Association (RGA) has reserved another nearly $2 million worth of time in the final weeks before the November election. One Wisconsin Now Executive Director Scot Ross said the latest influx of out-of-state campaign cash looks like part of an increasingly desperate attempt to prop up Gov. Scott Walker by the special interest funded RGA. ...OneWisconsinNow

  • Mike McCabe Bob, I think what's new about this latest batch of unsealed documents is the revelation about Gogebic Taconite giving $700,000 to Club for Growth. If the public had known about this secret donation when the mining bill was being debated, it would have cast a different light on that legislation, to say the least. What also was new and very striking was how the Walker camp was instructing donors to funnel money to a single group (Wisconsin Club for Growth) for the express purpose of getting around campaign contribution limits and donor disclosure as well as having more control over the message in advertising than if you have a bunch of supposedly independent groups doing ads.

Mary Burke - Who is she? Democratic nominee for governor of Wisconsin.

Who is Mary Burke ?
... Burke, the presumed Democratic nominee for governor, contrasts starkly with the image constructed of her by allies of her opponent. Supporters of Gov. Scott Walker have sought to portray the "Madison millionaire," as they refer to Burke, as spineless and incompetent.

You better Vote if you like having Health Insurance

Post Election 2014 - Is it to late?  Only if you just sit back!
Given how many times the House of Representatives has tried to annul it >50  !!!

It's not just a national issue.  It's local as well.  GOP Governors, Red States have done just about everything to make it difficult for ACA.  Many are the same Governors and States who want to deny choice to women, the vote to the poor or elderly and marriage equality.

9/23/2014 - It's Your Benefit, published by Employee Trust Funds (ETF)

As said above this is not just a national issue.  Governor Walker and the GOP led Legislature mandated ETF to develop a HDHP ( High Deductible Health Plan) for State Employees.  The rationale of such plans is always presented as "giving people more choice and saving money."

In fact what it does is take the market place for health insurance in a direction that ultimately only those with the most money can afford health insurance.  It fundamentally ignores what "insurance" is suppose to do - share the risk and maintain the health of people.

It shifts the cost of insurance to the unlucky from the lucky or wealthy, high income individual.
