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.
