BadgerCare: A Bad Idea

I just caught a snippet of an NPR radio segment about BadgerCare, a healthcare plan here in Wisconsin.

Badger healthcare?! Where are our priorities? What’s going on?

I realize the badger is our state animal—that Wisconsin is the badger state—but to dedicate a multi-multi-million dollar health care program for badgers? It’s ridiculous!

Maybe our eminently intelligent elected officials should create a healthcare plan that helps PEOPLE instead of badgers. Last I checked, badgers don’t vote, they don’t pay taxes—so why their own healthcare plan? And if we give badgers healthcare, why not provide every type of animal native to Wisconsin a healthcare plan, too?
