Health Care Ranking doesn't reflect Walker's refusal to Expand Medicaid, tossing 97,000 off Program!!!

Scott Walker is still be benefiting from health care policies championed by Democratic Governor Jim Doyle. Our continued rankings don't come close to changes made with increased copay's, not to mention throwing 97,000 off the program and into the federal exchanges this year. These changes should have a major impact on our future ranking.

Which makes the following ranking completely worthless, but a bragging point for Walker:
jsonline: Wisconsin ranks seventh in the country in the overall performance of its health system and has made gains in reducing infant mortality and improving care for people covered by Medicare, according to a report released by the Commonwealth Fund. The measures include health care access, quality, costs and outcomes between 2007 and 2012. And how states perform on those measures can vary widely.
