Senator Ron Johnson (WI) released the following statement regarding the decision of Governor Scott Walker (WI) not to create an Obamacare insurance exchange:

"I fully support Governor Walker's decision not to establish a state run health insurance exchange. He is absolutely correct that the heavy hand of the federal government will allow him little if any flexibility in setting up and operating an exchange.

"He is also right to be concerned about the federal government's ability to honor the promises it is making to fund the exchanges and the overall healthcare law.

"I will work closely with Governor Walker to limit the damage that this very partisan and unpopular law will do to Wisconsin's healthcare system and to our state and federal budgets."
