gordon-hintzMedicaid Expansion, Non-partisan Redistricting, and Public School Funding Highlighted


MADISON – Assembly Democratic Leader Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh) released the following statement after the latest Marquette poll confirmed that the majority of Wisconsinites support the agenda put forward by Governor Evers and legislative Democrats.

“The issues that Democrats have championed for years are the issues the people of Wisconsin care about. This poll confirms that the people we represent want us take the Medicaid expansion, fully fund our public schools, and pass non-partisan redistricting reform. The reason Governor Evers won in November is pretty simple: he listened to the people of our state. Republicans would be wise to join legislative Democrats in governing based on the priorities of the public rather than hiding behind gerrymandered maps to undermine the will of the people.”

We discuss the junk GOP pre-existing conditions bill that is moving with lightening speed through the legislature, which is much worse than doing nothing.

The panel also reviews Planned Parenthood of Wisconsin’s new legal effort to strike down some abortion damaging restrictions on women's reproductive health, and looks at the growing negative impact on Wisconsin of Donald Trump's government shutdown fiasco.
