Think tank says 142,000 would flock to state if universal coverage adopted
A state think tank says the sick and the insurable would flock to Wisconsin if the state passes its proposed tax-funded health plan.
The Policy Research Institute predicts that 142,000 people would move to the Badger State if Healthy Wisconsin passes.
Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker, D-Weston, has said that a modified version of the universal health plan would be introduced this session.
That's after a $15 billion overhaul failed two years ago.
