Fewer WI People On BadgerCare - - More $$ To Emergency Rooms

Thanks to great work at here are the human totals (and about 25% are in Milwaukee County):

Kicked off by County
Last week, on the day of the Senate vote on the budget to ensure that it would fly under the radar, the Wisconsin Department of Health Services finally released the long-demanded breakdown of which counties would see individuals forced off of BadgerCare and how many. This list is broken down below. 
This also by itself does not even include the numbers of people who should have had access to BadgerCare had Wisconsin accepted the federal funds. We have long featured those numbers on our website. Together they reveal massive numbers of citizens that will continue to struggle to access healthcare when they didn't have to.
