"Healthy Wisconsin" to Rise From the Dead?

Looks like a silver cruciform stake has to be found, folks.

Healthy Wisconsin, the Senate Democrats' proposal to bring universal health insurance coverage to the state, is dead but could become the impetus for bipartisan health care reforms in the Legislature, Sen. Jim Sullivan (D-Wauwatosa) said Friday.

Sen Kanavas, who was at the conference with Sullivan, was treated for shock and released.

But Sen. Jon Erpenbach (D-Middleton), a leading proponent of Healthy Wisconsin and chairman of the health committee, disagreed Friday with Sullivan's prognosis. The proposal, he said, will be modified to minimize any negative impact on small businesses and will be introduced in the Senate soon as a separate bill.

"Soon?"

Like in time for Hallowe'en?

I hope the whole thing is Dead. And this from a person who has crappy insurance.

There is nothing keeping us in Wisconsin but love of the state. My husband can live anywhere. No job keeps us. I would have hated to move but that tax raise would have killed us.
