GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Citizen Action of Wisconsin joined democrat State Senator Dave Hansen in protesting Governor Walkers decision to reject $12 Billion in federal aid that would be used to expand BadgerCare.
The move would allow those at or below the poverty line to qualify for the state run insurance program.
Today, Sen. Hansen and Citizen Action of Wisconsin held a news conference urging the government to change his mind saying expanding BadgerCare with federal money would help more people.
NBC26's Deandra Corinthios is working on this story and will have both sides tonight Live at 6:00.
