Senator Erpenbach statement on Wisconsin Department of Health Services withdraw of FamilyCare 2.0 Concept Paper from Joint Committee on Finance.


“This has been a yearlong battle for the nearly 60,000 people in this state who participate in Family Care and IRIS and the people who love them. They have organized, battled, advocated, and stressed.  I wish I could say it is a victory for them but it just feels like Governor Walker and the Department ran them through the ringer unnecessarily. There are some things in government that do not deserve to be measured with private company profit margin; care for the elderly and disabled is one of them.”
