women’s healthPlanned Parenthood Advocates, Paul Ryan shamelessly holding Zika virus funding, Wisconsin's dismal record on job creation, and the “Outsourced Wisconsin” tour launch.


WISCONSIN - We welcome Nicole Safar, from Planned Parenthood Advocates of Wisconsin to discuss their $1.6 million settlement victory from the state and how the issue of women’s health will impact the 2016 elections.

Jorna reveals Paul Ryan is shamelessly holding Zika virus funding hostage by tying it to cutting funding for Planned Parenthood.

We review new job creation numbers ranking Wisconsin 33rd. Wisconsin continues to trail the national rate of job creation, as it has since July 2011. Irish-based Johnson Controls International celebrated its $150 tax avoidance merger completion this week that will make company Chairman, Alex Molinaroli eligible for $74 million in “golden parachute” payments and a $20 million retention bonus.

We conclude talking about our “Outsourced Wisconsin” tour launch at Rexnord Thursday and the Assembly Republicans release their 2017 agenda.

sherman_park_wiWe reflect on Milwaukee Sherman Park unrest, Walker's WEDC misrepresented job creation, and the news one of the nation's largest health insurance corporations is pulling out of ObamaCare.


MILWAUKEE - We reflect on Milwaukee Sherman Park unrest and its implications, including the right-wing effort to exploit the situation and the desperate need to get serious about expanding economic opportunity in Milwaukee’s African-American community.

We also discuss a Citizen Action revelation that Governor Walker's jobs agency misrepresented job creation in Sherman Park. The panel bats around news that Johnson Controls shareholders approved the company's merger with Tyco International enabling them to dodge $150 million in U.S. taxes and dole out lavish gold parachutes to top executives on our dime.

Finally, we dig into the shocking news that one of the nation's largest health insurance corporations is pulling out of ObamaCare in retaliation for the Obama Administration's move to block a proposed mega merger.

gop_voting_racismSTATEWIDE - We welcome Citizen Action of Wisconsin organizer, Anita Johnson, to review a federal judge’s ruling that major parts of the voting restrictions laws passed by the conservative legislature and signed by Governor Walker between 2011 and 2014 are unconstitutional and that several constitute intentional racial discrimination against African American and Latino voters in Milwaukee.

We also talk about news that Affordable Care Act insurance rates in Wisconsin could increase anywhere from 5% to 36% in 2017 and how these costs are being driven by prescription drugs and other underlying medical costs.

Finally, we discuss Trump’s surreal week, a national push back against payday lenders and next Tuesday’s primary election.
