domestic-violence-on-childrenMadison – Black and Brown Womyn Power Coalition (BBWPC), End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin, and the Wisconsin Coalition Against Sexual Assault applaud the Wisconsin State Assembly for passing legislation that increases funding for sexual assault and domestic abuse services. This increase comes at a critical time for programs in Wisconsin who are facing a devastating 70% reduction in Victims of Crime Act (VOCA) funding in October.

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.

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.

gerrymander-disappear-2024MILWAUKEE - We do a deep dive on the redistricting drama , where Robin Vos has adopted Governor Evers’ position and Democrats are divided. Is Governor Evers falling into a trap that could provide a pretext for intervention by Trump appointed Federal Judges, as Mark Pocan warns? Why do many believe Evers will sign maps most Democrats in the Legislature oppose?  Why are some good government groups urging Evers to side with Vos? Robert and Matt break some inside news on what may be really going on in this consequential Capital intrigue.

We pan the latest regressive Legislative Republican tax cut. Is a tax cut skewed to wealthier Wisconsinites worth further defunding public education, healthcare, child care, and other vital public priorities. In better news, we celebrate news that President Biden’s policy to help the IRS collect revenue has resulted in $851 billion in back taxes from the ultra-wealthy.

Back home, we discuss next Tuesday’s Spring Primary Election and encourage our listeners to get educated and vote. We highlight especially pivotal elections for Green Bay City Council.

Speaking of Titletown, Green Bay area Congressman Mike Gallagher is not running for re-election. What does this say about him and more importantly what does it tell us about the Party of Trump?

Finally, we offer hardy congratulations to the workers at Planned Parenthood Wisconsin who successfully organized with the Wisconsin Federation of Nurses and Health Professionals with an overwhelming victory.
