Wisconsin 2011 Assembly Bill 210 – Questions

We are looking into what appears to be a rush to pass AB210 – implementing health insurance reform, providing an exemption from emergency rule procedures, and granting rule-making authority.

Much of what is in this legislation is very complex and has not been thoroughly studied.  We have spoken with at least one very reliable conservative representative on this and have been told this is a BAD BILL.  His office is still looking into this.  We have heard that lobbyists are all over the place at the capitol trying to get the votes for this bill.  It has been scheduled for the floor on October 18th.    

If you are hearing that ALL the TEA Party / Patriot Groups support AB210, THAT IS COMPLETELY FALSE!!!  This could set-up an Obamacare type system at the state level.  Even if / when Obamacare is declared unconstitutional, we could have this system as it would be WI state law.  Furthermore, this may be another example of crony capitalism as a pay-off the insurance industry.

We might be totally wrong.  However, do we really want to pass something before we know what’s in it?  Why the rush?  We need the details!!!

WE DO NOT SUPPORT GOV’T RUN HEALTHCARE OR INSURANCE EXCHANGES / COMPACTS AT ANY LEVEL OF GOV’T.
