Question for Wisconsin

Did you know that under the new health care law upwards of 200,000 more people in Wisconsin could have access to affordable health care coverage starting next year?
Even better? The money to cover them is already set aside.
By accepting federal funding to expand healthcare coverage, Wisconsin can cover more people, improve their access to quality health care including cancer screenings, and save millions of dollars that are currently being spent to treat the uninsured in our emergency rooms. 
All Wisconsin has to do is say yes.
Right now, we’re waiting on Governor Walker to make this decision. Does he accept the federal dollars that have been set aside to cover more Wisconsinites or turn the money down and let other states use it to provide health insurance to their residents? 
What do you think?  Should Wisconsin turn the money down or accept the money?
