Washington, D.C. -- Sen. Ron Johnson on Friday lauded Gov. Scott Walker's response to the failure of Obamacare's implementation.

"I commend Gov. Walker for acting swiftly and decisively to protect Wisconsinites as the rollout of Obamacare becomes a disaster.

"The governor will ask the Legislature for a three-month delay in moving Wisconsinites on BadgerCare into the exchange and a three-month extension of Wisconsin's high-risk pool, a plan that works. Scott Walker continues to show Wisconsin and America what real leadership looks like.

"The governor is doing whatever he can to spare the citizens of our state from the consequences of the Obama administration’s failure. Similarly, I’m working at the federal level to let people keep coverage that they prefer and to protect freedom and consumer choice in our health care system.  As a Wisconsinite, I urge the Legislature to act swiftly on the governor’s request. As a senator, I urge the administration to work with both Gov. Walker and with me to limit the damage of Obamacare on people's lives."
