Is Badgercare there for us? Not if Scott Walker can help it. Is workman’s comp there? Not if business partisans can make it more difficult for people to get help.
That’s what’s happened in this state since Walker became governor. It’s bad for hard working Wisconsinites, and it’s about to get much worse. Don't come to Wisconsin to work, you were warned.
The following story also shows you how bad our private sector health care system has become. Hey, let’s get rid of the other burdensome regulations insurers and providers have to follow too:
WEAU: "You know growing up ever since I was little I always wanted to be a firefighter," said Jason Raasch. He had the chance to live his dream. But at just 26-years-old, he never knew all of it would come to an end so soon.
In June he was working at his full-time job as a tow-truck driver, inflating a semi tire. "I was in such shock, I wasn't expecting it to blow up," he said. He was sent to the hospital suffering from brain and neck injuries. And now more than six months later, that accident has changed his life.
His employer is refusing to pay Worker's Comp and unemployment, and when he applied for Badgercare, he was turned down. A fund has been set up in his name. We have details about how to donate below.
The fund has been set up for Jason Raasch through WESTconsin Credit Union. Donations can be made at any location. Other donations can be made through the following address:
