"I don't let my balance carry over ever. I mean. Yeah. It's it's scary. How much trouble that you can get it? Now, I have one of these texts saying, well, those who have children to support her in a different personal financial world than your perspective. I believe. Oh, okay. All right. You can say that about anybody and anything when I first got a law school when my late wife, and I I bought our house. All right. We didn't have we the living room in the house sat vacant for five years five years because we really didn't have the money to furnish. It like we wanted to furnish it, so we we just let it sit sit empty, and I mean, it was just one of those things where I didn't want to go have been more today. Given what we do. We take it on the house. I wanted to get a handle on that and get the loans at least pay down a little bit before we started doing things. Now, that means we had an empty living room for five years, but it was one of those things where you sometimes have to delay gratification. And I guess I I understand that there's all sorts of justifications I understand there's people in all sorts of different positions. But the truth of the matter is if you are digging yourself a whole with credit card debt for everyday expenses. You are looking at a financial train wreck sooner or later. That's just the reality. You have to figure out a way to either make money more money or spend less. But if you keep borrowing and borrowing and borrowing, well, there's going to be a time of reckoning and unfortunately, Americans appear to keep borrowing and borrowing and borrowing, and I understand why that's going on because we've had a period of relatively good economic times over the last several years, but you know, that's gonna come to an end at some. Point, which now brings us that is my segue into what I want to discuss with you next put away sent out a note on this. If you follow me at Jeff were on Twitter, it's at Jeff Wagner, six twenty. My New Year's resolution has been to try to be much better on Twitter. And I think in general I have been several postings every day, including some of the things that we're going to be talking about. So if you want to get a head start again, just follow me at Jeff Wagner, six twenty on Twitter, but we have a budget process that is going on in in the state, and we have a new governor. And there is a new figuratively. Speaking sheriff in town, and there is a different philosophy. Scott Walker came into office eight plus years ago with a Republican legislature on a promise that we were not only not going to raise the tax burden on the citizens of the state of Wisconsin. But we were going to do things that ended up lowering that tax burden and you saw that that has has pretty. Much happened. Now, there's no question that there have been some winners and losers. But in general while we still remain a relatively high tax state. We have stabilized that governor Tony ears is ready to kind of blow the doors off that. So he he has his his new budget. That's out there. That's probably going nowhere in the state legislature. But the new budget is out there. But what he's saying? And he was at a play. He was giving a speech yesterday. And he said, well, here's the deal. He said, yes, we're we're continuing to freeze the tuition for you w w students which you know, that that's a great thing. But we're not going to be able to do that unless we raise everybody else's taxes. We're not going to be able to do the building that we'd all like to do unless we raise everybody's taxes. Even worse. Let's see depending on on. How you look at it. He wants somewhere between one B as in billion dollars to six B as in billion dollars. And that's a big range. But it depends on how you look at his wish wish list, but no matter how you cut it. He is looking at massive increases in taxes to help fund his agenda. Now, he's talking about for example, just as starters, you know, eight cents per gallon increase in the gas tax taking it from thirty three cents a gallon, two forty one cents a gallon just for the state tax. Interestingly the governor of Michigan same time. Tony Everts was talking about his tax increases the governor of Michigan. She was talking about her. She's a newly elected democrat. She came out and said here are gas tax has been twenty six cents a gallon. I want to Jack it up to forty five cents a gallon in the same thing to pay for some of the stuff that I want to pay for. Our number four one four seven nine nine one six twenty that is the accurate mortgage talk and text line for the last eight years, the message that has been Dopp kit, at least by a majority of the voters in the state is we do not want to see our taxes increased. We don't wanna pay more guess tax. We don't wanna pay more in state income tax. We don't want to pay more in property tax with the exception of referendums for schools that voters have you know, on an individual basis now been passing with pretty much regularity. But here's my question for you. And it is a sincere. One is the era of tax restraint over have. We reached a point now in twenty nineteen where collectively we've decided, you know, what we're not paying enough in taxes, and we want more things from government. So whether it's an increase in the state income tax or an increase in the property tax. Or an increase in the gas tax or an increase in that tax or another tax. We don't care anymore. You know, bring it on or our taxes still a concern for you tell you how I feel about this. And we'll discuss just a moment but four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. That's the accurate mortgage talk and text line taxes have been a big deal over the last eight years. Do we care about this anymore? Do you care if your taxes go up to fund all sorts of things we discussed in just a moment? It's twelve forty three. It's RV's.

"Today. It is about the pomp tomorrow and moving forward. It will be about the politics Madison. A new governor takes office in just a few hours. Tony eager to be sworn in in ceremonies that will continue through the afternoon and into tonight. Joining us live is today's TM J forest trails, benching Charles good morning. Well, set the palm today the politics tomorrow, actually, the politics, I guess in essence began right after Tony. Hebrew, election would quit the legislature. Did you're right moving forward. Now. How does Tony ears handle what the legislature did in that lame duck session? So I think he's going to go forward knowing that today's day, and this is a new era. And I you know, when you look at Tony Iverson's governor he lives by five words. I am who I am. And what he means by that is that if you look at over his career, he's a guy who has not been immersed in day to day politics. I mean, he's not like Scott Walker who spent twenty five years in politics and getting elected or even for that matter. Jim Doyle, Tommy Thompson, the other previous two governors. He's a guy who's been policy side for many years as a state school state school superintendent. So I think you're just a different approach of different style. When I talked to him last week. And I said is it really just wishful thinking that we could live in a five partisan era. And he says you can't do it any other way because he has Republicans in the legislature who have control of the assembly and in the Senate. So the only way to move forward is to try to build consensus, and he will tell you. That's what he's been doing for the last decade Charles, though, if he puts forth the policy, and as you said, the Republicans get crawl the legislature they voted down, and that's the end of it. Well, not the end of it because Wisconsin has one of the most powerful. Veto governor does and so knowing that he has that and that he can use it knowing that there are not enough votes to override a veto. He does have some power, and he does have some say these rooms. So the question is going forward. And by the way, I mean even governor Walker we'll tell you this most legislation is passed with Republicans and Democrats, it's the big policy issues and Tony verse wants to pass a big policy issues, but they Republicans and Democrats seem to agree that about education, at least Republicans will tell you about spending and the importance of it. The question is the dollar amount. How much more it who gets what especially when it comes to transportation. Where are they going to get the revenue to try to repair and build roads? And that is always in the details. And will he be able to negotiate those details knowing though that a guy like family speaker Voss and the majority leader, Scott FitzGerald. These are pros these guys lipid doing this don't how to work the mechanics of the house, and he's going to be up against some guys. Go pretty good pros at this. We're live with trails Benson of today's TM J four talking about incoming governor. Tony does Iverson Charles. Do you think to start new things to finish all projects or does? He spend any of his time or a lot of his time. Maybe deconstructing with Scott Walker did over the past eight years. So that will be interesting. He won't be able to do a lot of deconstructing give that you know, Republicans are saying they want some hard-fought battles here certainly with act and the the rules that limited collective bargaining Republican -ployees requiring people aren't health and pension. So it will be hard to move in that direction, but in tone and tenor it try to say, you know, here's who we are going to be as a state he might be able to do more of that does he win over the business community and others who had been behind governor Walker on a number of issues. How does he handle Foxconn that that look different going forward or does he just tweak it and fine? Tune it things that he thinks can help improve it. So he's going to have a lot of conversations. I was talking to a business guy over the weekend. Who said they told me Iverson had already called it had already talked to them. So it's what he does as he goes around the state making that communication connection to not just the voters. The business community the education community and moves forward decided sort of say, here's the new day. Here's the new era. Here's what it looks.

"That's Tony Evers who happened to be the state superintendent of schools, and his feeling was that the reason that Tony ears could win is one hit statewide name recognition, which is crucial and two is the fact that he was superintendent state superintendent of schools and Walker had already developed as much as he claimed to be an education gun. Ever had already. Everyone knew that. He was basically the guy who was pulling dollars out of the state budget for education and out of the state budget for higher education. So perhaps you would have to run against him on the fact that he was putting Wisconsin's future and our children's future in jeopardy. That's that was his prediction, and I and I actually trusted this young guy. And I I you know, we followed Iverson there were other very good candidates. But the only guy who really seemed to be above the fray a little bit. Was this Tony ears, and I can tell you Scott Walker was not a firebrand. He always reminded me of cartoon a TV kids TV character from the nineteen fifties. How do you do does? That mean anything to know? But I know I know what's got Wilco is like and I remember his performance in the debate. So when I say fiber, and I'm I mean, I mean he he had O'day she's political policy goals. But yes, if you met him in a room, you would look straight through him and casper, the friendly ghost is is. L? Let me let me say Tony is not a firebrand either. Okay. And in fact, I remember the first time I went to hear him talk here in Brown county at the county democratic society Orgainzation meeting, and I wrote a check in support of his campaign. I almost wondered if I have made a terrible mistake when I heard him speak. He was so sort of you know, sort of. Kind of down to earth, but he was also kind of routine and his manner in for me Harvey to to cost any aspersions on the great state of Wisconsin.

"Remember, Wisconsin has recall loss. If you remember governor Walker was there was an attempt to recall governor Walker after he passed these very anti labor and anti collective bargaining laws back in two thousand and eleven. By simply getting enough signatures on a petition you can recall try and make an attempt to recall some of these legislators in even though you have some people up in two thousand twenty you could send a signal by running. Recall campaigns against the most vulnerable Republican legislators who voted this way. And I think that's something to consider in the last thing that I think is important. It is often times when states pass these regressive laws that outside entities put pressure on that enforce change. Whether it is companies saying they won't have their businesses. There. We saw that in Indiana after they pass the blatantly, homophobic law. Whether it is sports leagues who said, they won't hold their all star games of their championship games in these states. We saw that in North Carolina after an anti trans Bill. There is a a there was a law on the passage legislature. That was eventually vetoed by the Republican governor because a lot of employers, including Salesforce said they would not locate their companies, they're if such laws pass in so there, I think Democrats should think about how we organized grassroots around businesses and other entities to put pressure on Wisconsin. Politicians? And so, for example, I know them a walkie bucks are desperately trying to get the NBA all star game. And I think twenty twenty two or twenty twenty three and I think there could be a grassroots campaign to put pressure on the NBA to not do that under this set of laws, which are anti-democratic and created Franklin uncertain business climate for these entities. So those are the sort of things I think are in our wheelhouse to do ultimately being control of legislatures is the key to this. Right. Well, I was gonna say I mean, Democrats should understand like Tony ears is not going to be able to accomplish all that much in the next two years with this legislature. And they have made that very clear from the outset it is not anything specific about Tony ears that they're upset about they are basically openly saying he's a liberal, and that's bad. And so not only are we not going to cooperate with him over the next two years. We're going to make his life a living. Hell we're gonna make sure that he doesn't get anything done whatsoever. It's like Mitch McConnell saying, you know, my main goal is to. Barack Obama one term president on steroids. That's basically what they've done here. So I think there's an opportunity here for Democrats to continue the organizing efforts in Wisconsin that we began in the lead up to twenty eighteen which were successful in the sense that Tony was elected governor. But look Wisconsin is going to be, you know, one of the tighter swing states of the three states that Trump won in two thousand sixteen the blue states that Trump won Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, probably going to be the toughest for us in twenty twenty. And so it will be good to be on the ground organizing protesting fighting now from now until twenty twenty and not only will that help sort of a more democratic legislature in twenty twenty but it'll help whoever the nominee is win Wisconsin in two thousand twenty. So I think you know, outside organizations the DNC everyone else should continue sort of the organizing effort on the ground and Wisconsin to fight this Republican legislature and then also lay the groundwork for twenty twenty so on Monday..

"They also wanna move important elections to unexpected times that might result in lower turnout would also cost the state nearly seven million extra dollars to implement no expense spared. Wisconsin Republicans are using this lame duck session to all of a sudden do everything they can at any cost to strip power from the Democrats who just beat them really badly in the elections in November. They're trying to make sure that Democrats don't gain any more ground, and they don't have any power that the Republicans can keep them from having to use. This is the new Republican playbook in the states. It's playing out right now in Wisconsin. And a hearing that has continued into the night tonight out the Wisconsin state capital. We're gonna have a live report in just a moment. Stay with us. This was the scene in the capital of Wisconsin today when on short notice protesters started to convene chanting protect our vote. Protect our vote outside the chambers of the state legislature. That's because after Democrats beat Republicans pretty much across the board in Wisconsin elections few weeks ago today Republicans in the state legislature held an hour's long hearing to strip power from the incoming democratic governor and democratic administration. Joining us now is John urban Bach. Wisconsin state Senator Senator urban bucket is nice to see you again. Thank you very much for being with us tonight. Good to see you too. So what's the latest? I know you just left the state capital. So you could join us on the program tonight. I don't wanna keep you long. But I also want to know what's going on there. Well, we still have our committee hearing going on and we're hearing public testimony right now, I'm pretty much everybody who showing up is obviously opposed to the legislation that we're taking a look at tonight. And then at some point tonight, not sure when it's going to be we'll have a vote in the committee, and then at some point tomorrow will head to the Senate floor. And have another vote. So we'll see what happens a lot a lot a lot coming up all of these measures as far as I can tell are things that the Republicans in the state legislature never considered never thought about never introduced never worked on until the democratic sweep in last month's elections were any of these things on the table before the Democrats did so well in these elections and Republicans realized they were going to have a new democratic administration to deal with no not at all. And that's because Scott Walker Republican governor for the past eight years, so they never talked about this stuff. So as a result, we had the people of Wisconsin vote to elect Tony vers and elections have consequences, and we all know that and we're not necessarily seeing a palace coup here, but we're certainly seeing a fit and what the leadership on the Republican side in the legislature. Both the Senate and the assembly you're trying to do right now is to try and can not only consolidate power. But actually take power away not only from incoming governor Tony ears, but our incoming attorney general democrat, Josh call. It's really frustrating. Because again, what people in Wisconsin wanted. Is they wanted balance? That's why Democrats wanted the top of the ticket. So now, we have a democratic governor and Republican legislature. And the idea is we're supposed to work together. But the Republicans apparently didn't get that message. Senator do you think it's possible that anything they're doing here is illegal? I mean, the reason that this is a national story tonight. It's not just because Wisconsin is part of the United States, and we love Wisconsin and your government. It's because this is a striking thing to see and a party losing its full grip on power and using its remaining power to essentially strip the ability of the other party to govern in the way that they were able to govern it just it seems like a fundamentally democratic thing are there legal questions here too. There are legal questions, and according to the lawyers that we have checked with a lot of this probably will be challenged in court. Some of it probably will be found unconstitutional..

"Black Friday experience, and what that means for shoppers a little bit later in the ten o'clock hour right now, we're talking about the governor. And the new governor governor elect Tony ears, and I was talking with a lot of folks at your camp over the weekend. We're talking politics and one of the things that came up was what do you expect in a Tony givers ministration? I asked my Monday morning guests, James Whitson. I question, and I I see transportation as a. Potential issue that both Republicans and Democrats could wrap their heads around doesn't mean it's going to happen. But I think it's one of the more likely because think of the other stuff that's on the table education. James mentioned it. Governor is known as an education. New governors knows an education governor, and frankly Skywalker himself that as well. Tony versus asking for over a billion dollars in new spending new funding for education. And I read raise the point with James this is on top of the one point three plus billion dollars that voters approved in referendums for education on on the the Tuesday the election. So that's really two plus billion dollars the challenges with Republican majorities in the assembly and Senate. He hasn't had votes to get that nor do I think without some very crafty use of his veto pen. He could ever flip the intention of the assembly and the Senate, but one of the areas of of I think concern on both sides of the aisle, Republicans have Democrats transportation. One of the things I know from talking to a lot of CEOs and business leaders is that piece of the Marquette piece west the Marquette from the between the zoo and the market interchange. That runs right by the stadium. Through the cemetery past state fair park. I think that's where the the new construction starts and whether that will be part of a transportation package. Now, I do caution people when they say, well, they're not fix the roads. I'm hard pressed to drive anywhere. And I drove hundreds of miles this week without seeing orange construction barrels all over the place. So the clearly there's work being done in the state of Wisconsin. So transportation seems like one of the areas where this governor and this legislature could find common ground. Four one four seven nine nine one six twenty. Do you think it's transportation, or do you think it's something else? The challenges with divided government finding any consensus on these topics on these concerns, and whether you can actually do that. It was a bit of a rough go as the transition started with Robin Vaas, simply speaker, Robin boss, pushing back pretty hardly pretty strongly against Tony Iverson said, we're not giving up our power. In fact, we may take some of the executive powers away from the governor something that I said, I think Jeff Wagner said the same thing. Slow your roll there. It is hyper political, and I think could have a backlash if members of the assembly in the Senate decided to all of a sudden strip powers away from governor after they just gave governor Scott Walker those same powers and privileges that would not be looked at kindly from voters. So I think there's some concern there. Now Republicans have a significant majority in both the assembly and the Senate strikingly, so. But things can change quickly in elections. And when these seats come up again in two years. What is it going to look at them? Is it transportation that is the big common ground policy issue? Or is it something else? One of the other ones is talking about healthcare. I cannot see. Given this group of lawmakers and given this governor. And his party, frankly is advocating essentially for free healthcare for all one. There's no budget for two while voters overwhelming. I think in the states of that's important to them. I don't think that's going to be decided on the state level. Ultimately think it's going to be decided on the national level if they decide anything and whatever. Variety of health care reform. We have I think we're a long ways away from healthcare free healthcare for all. But it's a transportation. Or is it something else? You can weigh in four one four seven nine nine one six twenty mortgage, talk and text line. These with you on this Monday, twenty seven degrees at Radio City. Thanks for listening as always.
