As Gov. Scott Walker prepared to declare the state’s economy “dramatically better” in his state of the state speech Wednesday night, U.S. Rep. Gwen Moore was decrying the Republican’s priorities.
In a stop at the Journal Sentinel to meet with editorial writers, the Democrat from Milwaukee said that unseating Walker was one of her top goals for 2014.
Moore said Milwaukee needed a “miracle” to avoid becoming a “ghost city” after Walker signed legislation ending residency requirements for school and municipal workers.
She declared of governors such as Walker who refused an expansion of Medicaid with mostly federal funding under the Obamacare health law: “People gotta be stuck on stupid waiting for dumb to come.” Walker says he instead made changes that meant “this year, for the first time in Wisconsin history, everyone living in poverty will be able to access health care under Medicaid.”
