From the original announcement (with one comment from me)
Dennis Smith was appointed by Governor Scott Walker to serve as Secretary of the Department of Health Services on January 3, 2011.
He was also a Senior Fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a Washington, D.C. think tank (which BTW: has received $3,355,000 in funding from Koch foundations).
He wrote many articles for the Heritage.
Dennis G. Smith, the former director of the federal Center for Medicaid and State Operations including the State Children's Health Insurance Program (S-CHIP).
Dennis Smith, who administered the Medicaid program for President George W. Bush
And even though I can’t prove he is a member of ALEC…
While serving as a Director at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Center -in the US Department of Health and Human Services - a division of the US government –
Smith included ALEC as a "cc" on official federal government correspondence
and who knows how many other times.
Why would a federal official do that - unless they have ties to ALEC?
This guy is scary! He is ALEC evil.
Wisconsin - watch out - don't ever take your eye off this guy!
Watch every move he makes, listen very carefully to every speech he makes and never, never, ever take anything he says for granted.
He may privatize the whole damn thing in the name of free-market enterprise becausehecan.
Oh, Wisconsin – I am so sorry!
