judges-billionaires-pandemicWISCONSIN - The panel digs into the racist federal appeals court ruling restricting Wisconsin early voting, and risking a dangerous replay of the infamous pandemic primary. Citizen Action is a lead plaintiff in the case. We discuss a new report co-released by Citizen Action of Wisconsin on how 8 Wisconsin billionaires have made an economic killing from the pandemic.

The pandemic continues to accelerate, confounding Donald Trump and the GOP by refusing to go away on its own.  We point out some of the hotspots and controversies around the Badger State. We look at the rising pressure for Congress and the President to extend coronavirus economic relief, and to make bold new investments in publicly-subsidized jobs and a green transition. We report back on a major news event Citizen Action led in La Crosse this week to put pressure on the feds to act. Finally, we look at the latest Wisconsin racial justice protest developments, and unveil the latest round of Citizen Action legislative endorsements.

Brookfield, WI – U.S. Navy veteran Tom Palzewicz, the Democratic candidate for Wisconsin’s Fifth Congressional District seat, is concerned by President Donald Trump’s reaction to the story alleging Russia paid bounties to Taliban militants to kill U.S. Soldiers.

donald-trump“The Russia Bounty story is just another made up by Fake News tale that is told only to damage me and the Republican Party,” Trump tweeted. “The secret source probably does not even exist, just like the story itself. If the discredited @nytimes has a source, reveal it. Just another HOAX!”

Palzewicz, who served aboard a nuclear submarine during his six-year enlistment, was confused by Trump’s lack of response when the story broke, but was even more perplexed by the president’s tweet.

tom-palzewicz“The President has a solemn, moral responsibility to protect and support our men and women in the armed forces,” said Palzewicz. “His statement suggests that he will not do or say anything to achieve that end. Even if the reports of the Russian activity are not completely accurate, the Commander-in-Chief must step up and defend our military.”

“Acting in the best interest of our military should not be a political issue, but an American issue,” Palzewicz continued. “We are all together in protecting our interests, our values and our security. When I am in Congress, protecting our military will be a high priority, regardless of political pressures.”

WISCONSIN - Today, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson Philip Shulman released a statement on the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics unemployment numbers that showed Trump’s disastrous response to the COVID-19 pandemic is continuing to crush Wisconsinites and Americans everywhere:

unemployment-great-depression“Today’s BLS numbers continue to show that Donald Trump’s failed response to the COVID-19 pandemic -- from taking the word of China over our own intelligence community, to advocating for less testing, to encouraging people not to wear masks, is preventing a full recovery as millions of families still bear the brunt of historic unemployment numbers. Wisconsin families are suffering simply because Trump cares more about what he looks like on TV than their livelihoods and wellbeing. With Trump in office this pain is going to get worse before it gets better, and that’s why we so desperately need to elect Joe Biden our next president.”
