Please note that A Better BadgerCare was formerly known as The Save BadgerCare Coalition.
Time to Speak Out for a Better BadgerCare!
Month Day, Year

Are you ready to speak out for A Better BadgerCare???
To have A Better BadgerCare in Wisconsin, advocates need to speak up and ask for two things:
1) Reject Governor Walker's Proposed Changes to BadgerCare, and
2) Expand Medicaid!
Link here to view A Better BadgerCare fact sheet with more information on these two asks and visit to learn more about what's at stake for BadgerCare in the State Budget.

We're calling upon individuals and organizations to speak out now and let members of the Joint Finance Committee know what A Better BadgerCare looks like.

Link here to send a message to all members of the Joint Finance Committee asking them to 1) Reject the Governor's Changes and 2) Expand Medicaid!

Be sure to forward this email to others interesting in A Better BadgerCare and stay connected with this effort on Facebook!  You can also visit us online.
