wi-we-need-2023MILWAUKEE - Robert updates the campaign to get legislative co-sponsors for the newly introduced BadgerCare Public Option bill. Priscilla encourages you to call your state legislators and urge them to co-sponsor and wants you to join us every Monday, 5-7pm, making calls to Wisconsin voters and getting them to call their state legislators in support. Attend upcoming media events in Eau Claire on 11/17, 11am, at the Chippewa Valley Free Clinic and in La Crosse on 11/20, 9:30am, at St. Clare Health Mission.

We talk about the significance of UW Health nurses’ union delivering safety violation forms to the state health department and why their organizing fight is critical to reforming the healthcare system, as nurses are the front line defenders of quality patient care. We also celebrate the end of the actors’ strike this week.

We welcome Mark Rice, Wisconsin Transformational Justice Campaign Coordinator at WISDOM, to discuss WISDOM’s organizing and legislative agenda on criminal justice reform in Wisconsin.  Wisconsin continues to trail the nation and surrounding states in lowering our incarceration rates while state facilities are currently experiencing a staffing shortage resulting in inhumane conditions for people in the facilities.

Robert updates the latest on the effort to get a better deal in the Brewers’ effort to get a public subsidy before we debrief the implications from Tuesday’s national election results as we are now one year away from a huge presidential election. We look at the latest polling, including a new MU Law poll that clearly shows the gerrymandered state legislature is very unpopular and vulnerable in the 2024 election. We encourage you to donate to our voter contact effort to win state legislative seats in 2024.

barkan-2023MILWAUKEE - We discuss the passing of healthcare activist Ady Barkan, who turned his fight against ALS into a crusade to break the monopoly power of the corporate insurance giants that are failing millions of Americans.

We explain the importance of the introduction of the BadgerCare Public Option bill in the state legislature, and discuss our news conference at the Green Bay Labor Council with lead legislative author Representative Kristina Shelton. The bill is the only one dealing with the skyrocketing cost of health care in this Legislative Session, as the GOP continues to introduce culture war issues that do nothing to improve the lives of average Wisconsinites. In a related development, a new national report finds that nearly 7 in 10 U.S. adults say they receive medical bills they cannot afford and many are skipping needed medical care.

The huge Brewers stadium subsidy bill is pulled from the floor, delaying action on the bill. What does it mean that even with a full court press by the unified corporate elite, Governor Evers, and Robin Vos, there are not enough votes in the Senate to pass it. While too many state politicians have been busy trying to ram through $546 million to a billionaire, the City of Waupun takes a rare step to invest public funds in child care after the GOP blocks all state action to address the access crisis.

We close by reviewing news the Public Service Commission will be announcing electric rate increases this week, as We Energies says it will accelerate plans to stop burning coal and reaffirms an Oak Creek plant shutdown.

public-interest-2023-2MILWAUKEE - We open with a somber discussion of yet another mass shooting in America where 18 people died and over 13 were wounded, bringing America’s mass shooting total to a staggering 558 this year.

Robert updates us on Wednesday's State Senate hearing on to bill to give the ultrach owner of the Milwaukee Brewers a $546 million public subsidy following Currently there are NOT the votes to pass the Assembly bill in the Senate, unless enough Democrats change their votes. Switching to allies who are showing how to use their power, we celebrate the UAW’s tentative agreement with Ford and wish more Wisconsin Democrats would be as strategic and willing to fight for what is right, even when others tell them it is not possible.

We invite our listeners to join us for next Tuesday’s BadgerCare Public Option media event at the Greater Green Bay Labor Council, at Noon, with the lead sponsor State Representative Kristia Shelton. Priscilla educates us about volunteer phone calls we started making to voters this week in support of the healthcare bill and urging people to call their state legislators and tell them to co-sponsor the legislation.

Finally, Robert also updates our listeners on local climate action planning in Wisconsin and why it is so important to advancing climate justice.
