Politifact: Is Wisconsin a Top 10 state for health care coverage? TRUE

In a Twitter spat with Sen Bernie Sanders, Scott Walker said "Under Democrat control of the state, WI had a waiting list for healthcare coverage under Medicaid. I eliminated the waiting list and everyone living in poverty is now covered, WI is a Top 10 state for healthcare coverage." Politifact compiled data from Kaiser Family Foundation , U.S. News & World Report health care ranking , Commonwealth Fund , and SmartAsset

Politifact ruling

Walker said Wisconsin is a Top 10 state for health care coverage.
