Scott Walker is not going to do anything to implement Obamacare in Wisconsin until after the November elections:
Gov. Scott Walker pledged again Thursday not to phase in any parts of President Barack Obama’s signature health care reform law ahead of November’s elections even though the U.S. Supreme Court ruled it is constitutional…
“While the court said it was legal, that doesn’t make it right,” Walker said at a news conference. “For us to put time and effort and resources into that doesn’t make a lot of sense.”
The law’s next deadline isn’t until mid-November, after the elections. But Democrats insisted the governor needs to start work now.
“Ignoring federal laws in hopes that someday they will be repealed is ridiculous and irresponsible policy making,” said state Rep. Kelda Helen Roys, D-Madison, who is running for Congress. “Walker, who falsely calls for increased bipartisanship, is once again pursuing his extremist policies at the expense of Wisconsin families.”
Of course, it didn’t need to be this way.
Update: The guy who led the recall effort behind the scenes (and who was Harry Reid’s communications strategist against Sharron Angle) is not happy:
MT @LegInsurrection: Scott Walker – talk to me about Obamacare on Nov 7 || Or, “I’m a sociopath w/less legal acumen than my dog. Worship me”
