Can you be a Christian and support Gov. Walkers proposed Medicaid changes?

SamaritanImage via WikipediaGovernor Scott Walker is not God and he is in the wrong when it comes to his proposed rule changes to Badgercare/Medicaid.  Jesus blessed, healed and gave food to the poor.  Shouldn't we do the same thing?  People will actually suffer and die if Governor Walker's health care proposals go through the way he wants.  Do we really have to live in Nazi Germany and allow  people to die just to get Governor Walker's budget balanced?  Isn't there some better way to balance the budget?  Jesus said "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy".  Governor Walkers proposed rule changes to existing health care programs do not show mercy to the poor and ill.  Why are these types of bills being secretly brought to a vote in the middle of the night and rammed through before anyone can even give an opposing vote?  Can't these rule changes stand up to a fair hearing in the light of day?  Is the Governor afraid that people will learn the truth about what he is proposing and protest a little bit?  I hope there are a few Republicans who are Christian enough to stand up to our new Governors pristine right wing economic ideology on this issue at least.
