Health care reform one way or another

Delegates interviewed expressed support for Senate Dems "Health Wisconsin" plan for universal healthcare, and also voiced support for Doyle's expansion of BadgerCare Plus, hoping to see at least some movement on health care reform.

Timothy Rotter, 1st Congressional District delegate, said he prefers the Senate plan. "I think it does more for working families and working men and women of the state," Rotter said.

Others echoed that sentiment, but also voiced support for Doyle's plan.

Peter Rickman, delegate from the 2nd Congressional District, said the Senate plan would help Wisconsin's economy as the state competes with countries that provide universal health care.

"I really hope the plan does get passed," he said, but added whether it's the Senate plan or Gov. Doyle's plan, "we need to see some action on health care now."

Susan Menzel, delegate from the 7th Congressional District, said at some point everyone needs health insurance, but urged Doyle to press on with his BadgerCare Plus plan.

"I want him to continue with it," Menzel said, "one step at a time is fine."

Rep. Robert Turner, here as a delagate from Racine, said he thinks "either plan is better than what we have now," but added that Doyle's plan would have a better chance in the Assembly and he was fine with taking health care reform a step at a time.
