Citizen Action in the News
Citizen Action’s Robert Kraig was on the popular Earl Ingram Show for the full hour, as he is every Wednesday at 10 AM. This week he discussed the Supreme Court, how to inoculate voters against right-wing disinformation, and other pressing topics. Listen to the full hour here.
Listen to the “Rallying for Our Rights” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast.
We welcome Sarah Godlewski to the show to discuss the “Rally for Our Rights” events across Wisconsin she is organizing with PPAWI, Citizen Action and other progressive allies to highlight the critical importance of abortion rights in the Supreme Court election. This week the WMC dropped $3.2 million into a disgusting crime ad targeting Janet Protasiewicz that was topped by another shameful attack ad attempting to terrify voters that Janet will “take away parental rights and impose trans ideology on our kids.”
We review Legislative news that Speaker Vos will kill Governor Tony Evers’ bad idea to subsidize stadium improvements for the Milwaukee Brewers and an outrageous effort by Republicans to weaken our vaccine requirements for children in Wisconsin. We also continue to sound the alarm bell on the brewing cold war with China. We discuss Fahreed Zakaria’s comments on CNN declaring that this Tuesday’s Congressional committee hearing of the new House select committee on China was like being transported back to the 1950s, as members of both parties tried to outdo one another in their denunciations of China.
