We welcome Scott Anderson, executive director, Wisconsin Council of Churches, to discuss a recent letter from 9 faith-based organizations raising moral objections to the forced drug testing of moderate income Wisconsinites. We also handicap changes in Walker's budget in the context of new polling numbers and pessimistic revenue projections. We look at State Senate's repeal of the 48 hour background check waiting period for the purchase of handguns. We also dig into new disturbing data linking increasing poverty in Wisconsin to the explosion of low wage jobs without benefits.
