Tax Reform: The next battle

The battle over the Obamacare "repeal and replace" taught us two important lessons:

  1. The Republican members of Congress have either not plans or lousy plans. With more than 7 years to to come up with a plan that improves Americans' health care they came up with:
     -- cut Medicaid
     -- cut taxes for the wealthy
  2. Though the GOP controls the White House (sort of) and both houses of Congress, active, intelligent resistance works.

Madison Alert: Let your legislators know what you think

The League of Women Voters are recommending citizens contact their state legislators about the following bills: 

  • Opposing AB 427 requiring the DPI to create a firearms training curriculum
    At a time when funds for the fundamental responsibilities of public education are seriously inadequate. 
  • Opposing August 2017 Special Session AB 1 (the “Foxconn bill”) 
    We need some due diligence on this before we give a huge tax giveaway so Scott Walker and Paul Ryan can win political points
  • Urging support in the state budget for the transportation needs of our aging and disabilities communities.
