healthcare_is_working_along_well

GOP failure this week to pass their draconian healthcare bill, Citizen Action Organizing Cooperatives, and more...


MILWAUKEE - We review the failed Senate Republican effort this week to hold a vote on their draconian healthcare bill. President Trump was optimistic saying, “healthcare is working along very well. We could have a big surprise with great a healthcare package... A great, great surprise.” Jorna highlights

Sen. Johnson’s disturbing comment comparing people with preexisting conditions to someone who has crashed their car and wants to buy auto insurance. We welcome Citizen Action Organizing Cooperative members, Lindsay Dorff (Green Bay) and Hans Breitenmoser (Merrill), to discuss their leadership in organizing citizen support for fair election maps and end to our current gerrymandered districts.

Jeff Smith, organizer for the Western Wisconsin Organizing Cooperative, joins us to talk about their fight against Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFOs.)  We also look at the new Marquette Poll which appears on the surface to show Gov. Walker gaining in popularity.

gas-pumpsCredit card skimmers are often put into gas pumps and, when customers swipe cards, the skimmers read the information and criminals use it to steal money from bank accounts or make fraudulent charges on credit cards. Madison and the state legislature have passed legislation to fight this crime.

so_that_s_why_it_was_a_secretThe Senate healthcare bill, Green Bay's State Rep. Eric Genrich on his visionary legislation to provide BadgerCare for all, Wisconsin's historic gerrymandering case, UW free speech, and more...


MILWAUKEE - We discuss the long-awaited, secretive Senate healthcare bill that includes larger cuts to Medicaid but differs little from the “mean” House bill that cuts healthcare from million Americans to provide a large tax break to the wealthy.

State Rep. Eric Genrich joins us to talk about his visionary legislation to provide BadgerCare for all through a public option.

We welcome Sachin Chheda, director of the Fair elections Project, to update us on the legal developments this week in the historic gerrymandering case the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to hear this fall.

We also review new developments on Republican efforts to restrict free speech at the UW System and how Gov. Walker’s plan to drug test Medicaid recipients received over 1000 public comments in opposition while only 5 comments in support.

black-hoodyMonopolized political speech, mass incarceration and voter suppression together pack an enormous discriminatory wallop. Overcoming the new Jim Crow starts with recognizing it and seeing through the false justifications.

CowsConservationists Praise Passage of Assembly Bill 226


MADISON – The Wisconsin State Assembly passed Assembly Bill 226 yesterday. The bill will make it easier for more households to replace wells contaminated with manure and human sewage or fix failing septic systems.

Executive Director Kerry Schumann issued this statement:

“This bill represents a step forward for Wisconsin residents suffering from manure-tainted drinking water. As taps run brown in some parts of the state and one-in-five private wells are poisoned with coliform bacteria, this crucial action will offer immediate relief to victims of Wisconsin’s drinking water crisis. We urge the Senate to pass this bill as soon as possible. 

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters looks forward to tackling the manure management problems that made this bill necessary through upcoming administrative rules and future legislation. It is unconscionable that thousands of Wisconsinites are unable to drink their tap water. We urge decision makers to make reduction of manure pollution a high priority. We thank Rep. Joel Kitchens for introducing the bill and members of the Assembly who voted for its passage.”
