univ-student-voteUpdate on SCOTUS and Wisconsin redistricting, Walker, big corporate money, and more...


MADISON - Here’s our take on the big redistricting case that the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to take. The short answer: I still think the good guys can win this:

U.S. Supreme Court agrees to hear Wisconsin redistricting case

Speaking of Supreme Courts, the Wisconsin Supreme Court just embarrassed itself again when the conservative justices voted to slam the doors on the public and no longer discuss administrative rules out in the open:

Wisconsin Supreme Court shuts public out

On the corporate front, Scott Walker continues to hobnob with people who cut him the big checks:

Walker visits Ashley Furniture and big donors

And the people of Wisconsin are not benefiting from all the money being tossed his way. Take a look at Anthem. It’s a big funder of Republicans in Wisconsin, and still it’s bolting:

Anthem is Wisconsin GOP booster

Meanwhile, I’ve given three speeches recently that I wanted to share with you in hopes that at least one of them appeals to you:

Walker’s assault on clean and open government

March for Truth speech

Why the disability rights movement and the democracy movement need each other

I’m eager to speak in your community, too, so if you’d like me to come out, please send me an email at  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

I hope you have a nice weekend.

Best,

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.
