I grew up around healthcare. I’m the grandson, son, godson, nephew, and brother of physicians who together have delivered over 20,000 babies in Wisconsin. As a result, I know firsthand that our state enjoys some of the best healthcare in the country.
Let’s face it: the government shutdown was stupid. I don’t say that to place blame on any particular party or person. The blame game is endless, and while it provides a short-term sugar high, it ultimately poisons the body politic. Rather, it was stupid because border security is one of the most solvable problems we face and we got no closer to solving it.
