When Washington fails to act, Wisconsin will once again step up to act in the best interest of our families.

Our Health Care Stability Plan will ease the financial burden of skyrocketing premiums for those on Obamacare’s individual market, continue to provide prescription drug coverage for our seniors, and ensure protection for those with preexisting conditions.

Hardworking Wisconsin families deserve affordable health care coverage and we are taking the lead to make sure they have it.

La Crosse Tribune: Cancer patient at Mayo-Franciscan tells Walker: 'They're saving my life'

Over the past week, we met with patients and health care professionals at hospitals in La Crosse, Green Bay, Eau Claire, and Wausau to discuss our Health Care Stability Plan.

While visiting the Mayo Clinic Health System-Franciscan Healthcare in La Crosse, we had the privilege to meet with Steve Dougherty, who was undergoing chemotherapy, and his wife, Jodi.

The stories of Steve’s battle with cancer, as well as the world-class treatment he has received, hit home.

This plan is about much more than simply making health care more affordable, it is about ensuring that anyone with a preexisting condition, like Steve, has the opportunity to acquire life-saving treatment and health care coverage here in Wisconsin.

We will continue to invest in training programs that help people with disabilities enter the workforce in order to help all Wisconsinites enjoy the self-independence that comes from work.

Fighting for Wisconsin Workers

We continue to fight for Wisconsin workers and their families.

Keeping longstanding Wisconsin companies like Kimberly-Clark, which provides family-supporting jobs in the state, is one of our top priorities.

We’re working closely with state legislators and our local and regional economic development partners to make a strong case for Kimberly-Clark to retain its operations in the Fox Valley.

By offering Kimberly-Clark larger tax credits, we are not only fighting to sustain an important state industry – we are standing with Wisconsin workers.

We enjoy sharing all the great news about our state with you. It is an honor to serve as your Governor and represent the people of Wisconsin.
