The Ongoing Plot Against Democracy – Battleground Wisconsin Podcast
This week host Matt Brusky is on vacation, and we have as a special guest panelist State Senator Chris Larson. Chris and Robert Kraig dig into the latest revelations from the January 6th Committee documents which putt more of Senator Ron Johnson’s fingerprints on the insurrection; the constitutional impasse in the House over the next Speaker, Trump’s obsession with overturning the results in Wisconsin, and the Big Lie views of the two conservative Wisconsin Supreme Court candidates. We then take a deep dive into weather governing in the public interest is possible with a hopelessly gerrymandered Legislature, including the prospects for BadgerCare Expansion, adequate revenue for schools and local government, and whether we can fend off a flat tax which raises taxes for most, slashes them from the ultra wealthy, and would create a permanent revenue hole that will defund our schools and other core public services. Can such a damaging tax policy be averted?
