STATEWIDE - We welcome Citizen Action coop member Sarah Godlewski who is in the final stretch of her amazing campaign for State Treasurer. Sarah reminds us how important it is to vote all the way down the ballot on Tuesday, November 6th.

We discuss the terrorist attack by a white nationalist in Pittsburgh and how the tragedy is a direct consequence of the hatred sewn by Donald Trump, and the Republican politics of division. We discuss the despicable new Trump ad vilifying immigrants, which some believe is even worse than the infamous Willie Horton ad. We review the new MU Law Poll and discuss the importance of getting involved in GOTV canvassing efforts the last 4 days of the election.

Robert reviews a new Citizen Action report finding that allowing Wisconsinites to buy-into Badgercare as a “Public Option” would slash premiums and deductibles by as much as $24,000 for a family of four. The report also found the healthcare cost gap with Minnesota is widening.

Trump and the Politics of Hate PDF Print E-mail

donald-trumpFormer attorney for the State of WI's agency regulating the securities & investment industry says Wisconsin voters, Democrats, Independents and Republicans, need to reject the Trump Politics of Hate.


MADISON - Trump is the personification of the politics of hate. And Wisconsin politicians who seek or accept Trump's endorsement are part of the Trump Politics of Hate "Flock."

Ever since Donald Trump emerged as a Republican candidate and then later became President, he has espoused and led a divisive, "National Politics of Hate." As evidenced by his labeling of Mexicans as "criminals and rapists," by his attacking the entirety of Muslim nations as "terrorists," labeling African nations as "sh**hole countries," enacting a policy of separating families of asylum-seekers, relishing that a grand wizard of the white-supremacist Ku Klux Klan admires and supports Trump's policies, tweeting anti-Semitic images from a right-wing message board, and being an apologist for rioting neo-Nazis in Charlottesville.

pittsburgh-synagogue-shootingAmerica has seen the consequences of Trump's Politics of Hate in the events during the last week of pipe bombs sent by an extremist Trump supporter to prominent Democratic leaders as well as a deadly "hate crime" mass shooting in a Pittsburgh Jewish synagogue. The parallels of Trump's Politics of Hate to the the rise of Nazism under Hitler are striking.

On the basis of the principle everyone knows to be true that "birds of a feather flock together," it follows that every Republican politician who seeks or accepts Trump's endorsement means that they support his Politics of Hate and are willing participants in his "Flock". And that they therefore reject the principles the United States of America was founded upon in the Declaration of Independence that "all persons are created equal with the unalienable rights of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," as well as the protections of the Constitution's Bill of Rights and its subsequent amendments including "equal protection" for all citizens.

As a result, it means that Wisconsin Republican politicians like Scott Walker and Leah Vukmir, as well as any other Republican politician that seeks or accepts Trump's endorsement, are part of the Trump Politics of Hate "Flock." Consequently, voters -- whether they be Democrats, Independents or Republicans -- who reject the Trump Politics of Hate, need to reject in the upcoming election as well as in the future, every politician who seeks or accepts Trump's endorsement.

Desperate Walker Pouring on the Lies PDF Print E-mail

walkerWalker is claiming he would enact the “exact same” protections on pre-existing conditions he’s currently suing to get rid of.


MADISON - Scott Walker’s desperation knows no bounds--this time he’s telling another blatant lie about his work to eliminate protections for the 2.4 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.

Despite staking his political career on rolling back the Affordable Care Act, including protections for those with pre-existing conditions, Walker is suddenly claiming he would enact the “exact same” protections he’s currently suing to get rid of.

“Scott Walker’s career is defined by desperate politics and shameless political opportunism,” said DGA Press Secretary Melissa Miller. “His latest lie is no different. Now that health care is the most important issue to Wisconsinites, Walker is playing politics with health care. Wisconsinites deserve a governor who won’t use health care as a political ploy and instead will protect protections for 2.4 million Wisconsinites with pre-existing conditions.”
