PutinDuffy told Fox News host Martha MacCallum "And my concern, Martha, is what the hell are we investigating?"


MADISON - As Attorney General Jeff Sessions begins to testify to rebut the testimony of former FBI Director James Comey, Rep. Sean Duffy doesn't seem to know what the Department of Justice is investigating in the first place. 

During an interview with Fox News, Rep. Sean Duffy told host Martha MacCallum "And my concern, Martha, is what the hell are we investigating?" In the same interview, Duffy also asked, “Why are we going through this charade of an investigation when there’s no evidence that Donald Trump had anything to do with the Russians?”

CowsConservationists Praise Passage of Assembly Bill 226


MADISON – The Wisconsin State Assembly passed Assembly Bill 226 yesterday. The bill will make it easier for more households to replace wells contaminated with manure and human sewage or fix failing septic systems.

Executive Director Kerry Schumann issued this statement:

“This bill represents a step forward for Wisconsin residents suffering from manure-tainted drinking water. As taps run brown in some parts of the state and one-in-five private wells are poisoned with coliform bacteria, this crucial action will offer immediate relief to victims of Wisconsin’s drinking water crisis. We urge the Senate to pass this bill as soon as possible. 

Wisconsin League of Conservation Voters looks forward to tackling the manure management problems that made this bill necessary through upcoming administrative rules and future legislation. It is unconscionable that thousands of Wisconsinites are unable to drink their tap water. We urge decision makers to make reduction of manure pollution a high priority. We thank Rep. Joel Kitchens for introducing the bill and members of the Assembly who voted for its passage.”

black-hoodyMonopolized political speech, mass incarceration and voter suppression together pack an enormous discriminatory wallop. Overcoming the new Jim Crow starts with recognizing it and seeing through the false justifications.

Mitch McConnellSenate Republicans will release their health care bill today in Washington, and here's what you can do about it.


WASHINGTON, D.C. - Senate Republicans are poised to release the long awaited details of their health care bill later today and details leaked to the media last night. While many hoped the Senate would produce a more humane bill, in some ways it may be worse than the House version which even Donald Trump says is “mean.”

This explains why the bill has been developed in secret, and why Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is planning to ram it through in one week with as little public debate as possible. The Republican leaders know that their goal of taking health care away from millions of Americans to fund huge new tax cut for the super rich cannot succeed if the public is fully informed.

Because of the incredible work of thousands of people like you across Wisconsin, Senator Ron Johnson now says he is on the fence. Today Johnson told The Hill newspaper: “I’ve told [McConnell], unless I have the input from my constituents, unless I have got the information I need to justify a yes vote, I won’t be voting yes.”

McConnell can only lose 2 votes, so a defection by Ron Johnson could be huge. But there is a good chance that McConnell will be able to twist Johnson’s arm and force him back in line unless we can keep the pressure on!

so_that_s_why_it_was_a_secretThe Senate healthcare bill, Green Bay's State Rep. Eric Genrich on his visionary legislation to provide BadgerCare for all, Wisconsin's historic gerrymandering case, UW free speech, and more...


MILWAUKEE - We discuss the long-awaited, secretive Senate healthcare bill that includes larger cuts to Medicaid but differs little from the “mean” House bill that cuts healthcare from million Americans to provide a large tax break to the wealthy.

State Rep. Eric Genrich joins us to talk about his visionary legislation to provide BadgerCare for all through a public option.

We welcome Sachin Chheda, director of the Fair elections Project, to update us on the legal developments this week in the historic gerrymandering case the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to hear this fall.

We also review new developments on Republican efforts to restrict free speech at the UW System and how Gov. Walker’s plan to drug test Medicaid recipients received over 1000 public comments in opposition while only 5 comments in support.
