Foley Wants Connecticut to Follow the Walmart Health Care Example

October 9, 2014

Tom Foley is one of the Worst Candidates for Working Families in the 2014 Elections, and he keeps making that very clear. As reporter Ken Dixon tweeted (see above), Foley recently said that the state of Connecticut should handle its health care the same way corporations such as Walmart do. People who pay attention already know how ludicrous that statement is, but it is particularly bad coming on the day Walmart cut health care for 30,000 part-time workers and raised premiums on all 1.2 million of its employees participating in the company's health care plan.
