Listen to “Minority Rule in MAGA America” Battleground Wisconsin Podcast
We discuss the breaking federal “debt deal” that passed the House on Wednesday, setting up its passage through the Senate. We look at some of the details, including SNAP work requirements, and discuss the Republican Party’s full embrace of “minority rule” in America and its parallel in Wisconsin politics, including new bills in the state legislature criminalizing abortion rights. Robert tells us about an exciting new broad coalition calling for Gov. Evers to use his strong veto power to fight for critical priorities, like closing the healthcare coverage gap in BadgerCare.
We celebrate the start of Pride month in June and reflect on why the month and its celebrations like Pride Fest at Summerfest are so important at this moment of “minority rule” in America. We discuss the outstanding article in In These Times that reminds us “you can’t organize alone.” We encourage you to get active in democracy and join a Citizen Action Organizing Co-op in June!
Listen to the show!
