Gov. Evers: Expanding Wisconsin's Child and Dependent Care Tax Credit for Working Families PDF Print E-mail
Commentary
Written by GOV Press Wisconsin   
Thursday, 07 March 2024 14:14

childcare-dropoffMADISON — Gov. Tony Evers today delivered the Democratic Radio Address on signing Assembly Bill 1023, now 2023 Wisconsin Act 101, which expands the current child and dependent care tax credit from 50 percent to 100 percent of the federal credit, helping reduce the tax burden for families struggling to afford the high cost of child care and care for adult dependents. Act 101, similar to a proposal Gov. Evers recommended in his 2023-25 biennial budget proposal, provides tax relief to over 110,000 Wisconsin taxpayers at an average benefit of over $656 per filer, totaling nearly $73 million in annual tax relief. More information about Act 101 is available here.

immunity-blues-2024MILWAUKEE - On a special edition of Battleground Wisconsin, Matt is away on a field trip to North Carolina, and our producer, Brian, has a speaking role for the first time in our 13 year history.

Robert and Brian dig into the latest Trump-McConnell packed U.S. Supreme Court political intervention on the presidential immunity case. Will it replace America's founding axiom that nobody is above the law with a 21st Century version of the Divine Right of Kings? We also look deeply at the results of the Michigan Presidential Primary across the freshwater pond. Does it mean that Biden is losing the election on the thorns of the Gaza dilemma? Turning to state news, Governor Evers unveils a rapid response plan for the rash of hospital and clinic closures in the Chippewa Valley. Does it get to the heart of the problem with commodified and profit-centric healthcare, or  is it putting bandages on an infected wound?

Gov Evers: Keeping His Promise to Deliver Fair Maps for Wisconsin PDF Print E-mail

wi-fair-mapsMADISON — Gov. Tony Evers delivered the Democratic Radio Address on Thursday on how he kept his promise to deliver fair maps for Wisconsin by signing Senate Bill 488, now 2023 Wisconsin Act 94, undoing a decade of Wisconsinites living under some of the most gerrymandered maps in the United States. Gov. Evers’ effort to secure fair legislative maps marks the first time in over fifty years that Wisconsin will have fair legislative maps enacted through the legislative process rather than through the courts.

Battleground WI: Generational opportunity for progressives PDF Print E-mail

gen-op-pro-2024MILWAUKEE - New polling from a very trusted source finds the top public economic concern is the high cost of health care and crippling medical bills. What does this mean for the 2024 elections? We also urge the Governor to call a special session on accepting federal Medicaid money and expanding access to healthcare for small businesses and more workers through the BadgerCare Public Option bill already supported by most Democrats.

We review the controversy and the implications of the new state legislative maps signed by Governor Evers earlier this week. What should progressives be focusing on? In other legislative developments, the much discussed regressive tax cut package to disproportionately benefit higher income people is on the Governor’s desk. Will he veto? We renew our call for progressive tax package from the Governor and Democrats that forces greedy corporations and the rich to pay their fair share.

California banker and billionaire Eric Hovde is set to challenge U.S. Senator Tammy Baldwin and a Wisconsin fake elector and GOP leader tells ‘60 Minutes’ he was afraid of Trump supporters. We discuss the implications of each.
