Walker's a Genius: waste taxpayer money paying hospitals for their uncompensated care, instead of expanding Medicaid.

Scott Walker doesn't care how much it costs, and neither do his loyal followers, since Republicans aren't complaining about the massive payout to private hospitals losing money to the uninsured sick. And the irony is Walker is counting on the federal government to pay part of those losses.

Back in June of 2013, he passed this one out:
Scott Walker agreed to pay hospitals up to $73.5 million over the next two years in anticipation they could see an increase in uninsured patients visiting emergency rooms. State taxpayers would fund $30 million of that, with the rest coming from the federal government.
From WKOW:



We don't know what the new amount is, but you can bet Obama hating Walker supporters are willing to wasted every penny to make their dumb ass point.
