"So Biden says I got a document which for a lot of you all got a document. The documentary presents his tax Bill. And tax Bill does say if you register for the installment plan, you could pay on the installment plan of the ways you owe the entire lump sum. And I think January thirty first is the date that they put out for property taxes. It's never relevant to me because I always wanted to get the tax breaks. I always pay by December thirty first. So I can get an of that year's thing. Even if you have to borrow the money it's a tax deduction, although you wonder packs reform. I still itemize this past year. But a lot of people ended up, not because remember the standard deduction way way way, way up, you don't even know what you will, your wife's got a complicated thing doughnuts. And she did you still itemize? You don't even know who you. I barely know anything because I just heard it all over to a tax guy, but I do I barely know used page through it. I honestly don't anymore. I don't I, I look at the bottom thing and how much do I have a refund coming back? And what about the other things do how many other states have to send crap off to now that the electric, they file all that, too? That's even bail. Don't have to do that. But I did know that. And I am consciously aware of, you know, strategies to reduce your tax burden than what is it acceptable deduction? And what is not, but you have to have a lot more deductions itemize because the tax cut the President Trump signed significantly increased the standard deduction, which has led. Some people think that they actually didn't get a tax cut, because they don't understand taxes work anyway. I digress. Clearly. So he presents them with the tax Bill, the same thing, and if he Barnes things on the city of Milwaukee. So I know exactly what it looks like comes hasn't changed forever. Some comes the city treasures office, and it puts the amount of a little box at the bottom, and then it says you could pay on the install plan. If you want to, but you've got to set that up with the city of the walk, if you want to do the installment, and then with that, you got to pay the installment plan literally means once a month every month. But bicy- story then goes to Jessica's Wagga of the Milwaukee city treasures office. And she says. There is no installment plan in place on this property and the taxes are delinquent so much for Barnes's crap. But, like I say he tells the story, I'm just thinking, all he wants to get Dan vice off the phone right now and move on and figure out by tomorrow, a better lie to be able to weasel out of this thing or just decide and the Lieutenant governor of the state of Wisconsin. And nobody can do a dog on thing about it. So what if there's a story that makes me look bad in the newspaper, the voters of the state were not only to elect Tony Evert, says the governor there, even dumber, they meet that may be the tenant governor, you've got a clueless in over his head slumbering governor and me a deadbeat completely unqualified for the position as Lieutenant governor. But like I said, we just got elected, we're in for three more years than six more months. So what can you do about it? Maybe I don't care if everybody knows I have a deadbeat, which may be where he eventually is on this. But he tells them I got the installment plans. Stop and plan on the tax delinquent. The story says it's why that's the woman from the treasurer's office said the record from Barnes was just the original tax Bill. I got on the. Any shows his tax Bill though. Be like me. Going to a restaurant and say, I can prove paid for by dinner at hold up the check they gave me. I can probably paid it. How cares the bell? Well, that just means they Bill. So that's the line. Bars was taking. So I said the record from Barnes was just the original tax Bill that included the monthly amount he would if he opted to pay installments instead of the lump sum. She said he failed to make the first payment in the agreement by January thirty first, that is put swagger said. Barnes colored bars is an answer for this. Like I said, no guys are deadbeats like this. They have generally lines that they can continue for a time and time and time and time, most people that are pretty effective at dead. Beating after the first life, all apart. They've got nineteen more to tell you what I was mentioning the checks in the mail. The guy didn't pay for the car, the check by all this stuff. So there's usually ninety to hear Bill de LA Barnes, new line guy like you, you're a terrible liar. Well, that's probably good, right? I don't know like come in handy. Y'all your mind your moral a decent of a person, well this probably truth to that. See, I think I'm not a liar either. But I've heard enough of them that I could I could pull it off. If I need be for instance I while I don't feel the need to lie. I bet I could lie for a long, long time. My, my way out of a lot of things because I've heard all this stuff forever and ever it ever. Sorry, they ask you would never get this after Mandela's. Look. They said, that's just the Bill. That's that agreement on the installment plan, you would have no idea what to say on that, because, you know, you've been caught red-handed, right? So what would you say? You gotta think you gotta think like a guy like Mandela barreds. You'd be you're still still plan on pay. That's he's claiming that he's not delinquent. If you're still planning on paying that means you're admitting your delinquent. That's great. What? Okay. Yeah. Well, you really weasel out of that. What I'm not saying Barnes is in any more load of crap of that. He's end says. How is there? No installment plan if the Bill says installment plaid. The fact that the Bill says you can have an installment plan doesn't mean you have one. For instance, I think of my credit card bills that I come in. They say up there, it'll say, like let's suppose my Bill says eleven hundred and forty two dollars and sixty seven cents it'll that have the box minimum payment, maybe thirty five dollars or something like that. I still got a pay thirty five dollars. The minimum payment. I can't pay it off pay. Nothing pointed. So say how can they say there's no installment plan if the Bill? That's an installment plan on it. Now, you could say maybe Barnes is just stupid doesn't understand this. Give me a break. He's not that stupid. But like I said, even if he was that stupid. How does he explain the fact that he hasn't made any of the installment plans that he claims he's and the answer is simple? Barnes is just not going to pay property taxes. Any Philly feels like he has at Wendy people like this feel like they have to do you know at the end of that is or not. Well, I'll tell you when the answers and that's when the city files a foreclosure notice because you can't be a victim for non-payment of property taxes. And if you talk to the treasurer's office in any city in the state of Wisconsin, there's some people who won't pay until you file the notice on them. And that, that's when you foreclose on the property, and you literally can literally take on a property. Nobody is ever stupid enough to let it go into that point because you don't wanna lose in the case of barge wanna lose one hundred thousand dollar condo, because you aren't paying two thousand dollars of the property taxes. So at some point, he'll probably pay the property taxes, but he's not gonna pay it until he feels like paying it because that's how deadbeats on back to the story. Asked if he is going to pay the debt, he said, I'm not going to get for closed. What did I just say is when they pay when the foreclosure comes up, it other words when they finally get this is the mentality of Barnes, who's probably gonna slippery character like this probably his entire life, and it just the way that he does things. But he is the Lieutenant governor of the state of Wisconsin, which innovate self does it mean much of anything other than the fact that he's headed governor of the state of Wisconsin, who has not the healthiest looking vibrant, youthful governor in the history of this state. In fact, we might have just the opposite. And there's a chance that he could be the governor of the state of Wisconsin, making policy and tax policy and other issues of consequence on matters like this for the rest of the people of Wisconsin, yet, he doesn't believe is though, he should even have to pay his bills, the government back to the store. Of course, I'm going to pay my property taxes. Well, pay up. Then pay them figure something out pay him. Pulses. I just said it, of course it's not that much with, with guys like Barnes who are deadbeats. There's just always a reason. There's something else going on responded to much money on something else or your, I've seen this, my entire life. You know, the top ten reasons by people that, like deadbeat like this, number one. They're paying too much child. Support. Number two, they got too many girlfriends number three. They gamble number four. I can't use them for what? No, I would say addictive drugs. That's just not of the top Ted. It's, it's, it's in the top ten it's just not that high on the top. There's all these other reasons that people have all this stuff. But, like I say, it's people that have just too many personal expenses that go at odd and child supports of big one. It's a lot of money that you have to pay and child support is based on pretext money. I think. All the other things that are out there that are going on. Also, you might just have too many things you might have to toys, you max out all the credit cards that you have in people that are deadbeats. They just love to get additional credit cards because it's one more thing that they can get stuff and not pay the Bill on just keep making the minimum pay. But eventually, what a lot of them do is they just filed for bankruptcy and then discharge big chunk of the debts. I don't think Mandela Barnes, you know, can do that. Also, probably going to figure out a way to use campaign contributions to pay some of the bills that are sitting out there so that he could take the money. That's leftover to pay the other stuff that he has. But in the meantime, do understand what, what the consequence of this story is it means that the guy who is. I would say fifty fifty to become the governor at some point in this state. Is a deadbeat.

Watching Tony Everts roll out his scheme to decriminalize cannabis in Wisconsin when he did. So he rolled out a stat that when I heard it a kind of washed over me. It didn't ring. True. I didn't to my discredit leap on it and go investigated, but others have. He said, and this was also in the official release that accompanied his news conference that seventy five to eighty five percent of Wisconsin's inmate population. We're in the who scalp because of drug related offenses. Some alert critical thinkers associated with this very radio station to check out that number immediately. And it turns out to be yes. Say it with me another load of crap. Matt Kittle frequent contributor writes about this for the macgyver institute. Says when Tony Evers announced his first step proposal to legalize medical and recreational marijuana. He said he wanted to make it clear that the wide ranging initiative was not just what access to healthcare health healthcare rather surrounded by legalization advocates, including state Senator John erpenbeck in state Representative Chris Taylor, either is justified his call to do criminalize possession of small amounts of marijuana defined as less than twenty five grams by making the whole thing a social Justice issue. Matt writes in a press release it on his official Twitter account Iverson cleared that quote drug related offensive offenses make up as much as seventy five eighty five percent of inmate populations and quote. Mad points out definitively says in this article that he wrote for the macgyver is that claim twenty seventy five to eighty five percent of incarcerations due to some sort of drug related. Deal the claim is patently false. And it appears that team Evers knows that now as well. The latest version of the press relief release on the governor's web page scrubs. The seventy five to eighty five percent, quote fact, and quote, the release notes this is an updated version that correct and accurate statistics. That was included an air is not specify what inaccurate statistics was. But the figures disappear as an actual facts fill in the blanks. Our very own Dan O'Donnell noted in this column that he wrote for the macgyver institute this week that eleven percent of inmates in Wisconsin are incarcerated for drug related offenses that is according to the authority on the subject. The Wisconsin department of corrections. Dave points out. The political fact actually investigated this, which is a very rare thing.

On his excellent program this morning, Jay Weber did an interview with Alex Berenson, who is the author of a book entitled tell your children the truth about marijuana, mental illness and violence. Alex Berenson, I believe used to write for the New York Times if I'm not mistaken, I could be wrong about that. But I think that's the case. He acknowledged in the interview with Weber that the pro cannabis lobby is quite upset with him for pointing out the things that he points out in terms of research. That's just that smoking marijuana may not be a safer. Some might lead you to believe the link to that entire interview, which is about fifteen minutes long. Or so is posted Jay Weber's blog at news talk eleven thirty dot com. Check it out sometime this weekend. It's extremely interesting. I got the chance to hear the interview live while walking one of my hounds this morning. Speaking of Tony Everts, real quick. He vetoed the Republican tax cut earlier this week. The reasons he gave in his veto message are funk, I'm gonna give you the real reasons. He said in his veto message us rejecting this tax cut because he objected to passing a major fiscal policy item outside of the state budget process. That's laughable that that was all the time that things that have budgetary impacts Donut aren't necessarily rolled into the biennial budget. Bill things are voted on independently all the time. Can I give you on Foxconn? There's one. We can't have a major fiscal policy initiative be passed outside of the budget process. Come on. The move the veto. It says an journal sentinel online article jazz online article irks Republicans who authored the planner responds to Everts campaign proposes to an acting middle class tax cut. But. His tax cut Iverson tax cut is going to be funded by reducing or eliminating all I know a tax credit that manufacturers and farmers receive. Scott FitzGerald, set Republican Senate majority leader weighed in on this, quote, let me be clear with the governor. I will not support raising taxes on our states job creators, end quote. This. Joe's comments for shadow of potential second showdown between Iverson Republicans by suggesting lawmakers on the Republican controlled budget writing committee would not accept tax cut the way that Everts wanted the panel could rewrite the plan to match the Bill vetoed Wednesday or scrap it all together. He veto this tax cut for two reasons. The first thing is this even wants to revoke tax credits are manufacturers and farmers to fund an income redistribution scheme. Then expands the earned income tax credit that is a refundable so-called refundable, tax credit, meaning that even those who work, but have zero state tax liability get a cash payment from the State Department of revenue in other words, it's welfare. That's what he wants. He wants to take away the incentive for manufacturers to operate in the state of Wisconsin. And instead fund a what is in essence, a glorified welfare payments to individuals who have who work, but have no state tax income life, state, income, tax liability. That's the deal. The Republicans want to return a seven hundred million dollars surplus back to Wisconsin taxpayers which is perfectly proper surpluses are overcharges overcharging, the taxpayers of the state of Wisconsin to run the government is wrong. It's a lot of people's surpluses are great. They're not surpluses need to be returned. But rust assured that Tony and his socialist puppet masters don't want it refund that surplus they want to spend it. And I think the most likely outcome in this is no tax cut for anyone, which is unfortunate. But remember the Republicans passed one that perfectly funded by seven hundred million dollar budget surplus doing the proper thing giving back the overcharges of the people and Tony ever said that he did not like that idea..

"The the problem is you got people in the cheap seats. Frankly, you've got, you know, liberal members of the legislature or others who can sit there and take shots deals like this. Which is why Wisconsin hasn't gotten these deals before they got these kinds of deals because people like Scott Walker and other stepped up and say, hey, I mean, the governor is delete cheerleader for the state when you're trying to bring a business to the state of any size at all. The governor is the leeann cheerleader, which is why Foxconn is here. I think our I think our governor should maybe practices pompoms. You know, he needs to practice his pom-poms because cheerleading Wisconsin, judging by the state of the state address is not something that's. Let's just say not something he has a high level of comfort with particularly given that his that his team team democrat seem to be wanting to do everything in their power to talk about the disaster. The full-on complete disaster that the state of Wisconsin had become with billions of dollars in growth and sales tax revenue increases and tax surpluses and property tax reductions and wild expansion and low unemployment rates, and tens of thousands of jobs beyond the capacity of us to fill those jobs. I know that's that's that's horrible. But maybe Tony Everts might wanna consider that. That's actually a good thing. And those are the types of things that make other companies want to invest in our state as well. Absolutely. And Scott Walker showed that time and again over and over and over and over the governor, I don't care which party there in what year, it is whatever they are the leered lead cheerleader for the state. They're the ones calling the company president. They're the ones calling. The company board of directors members. They're the ones calling the company investors Tony memo. Tony Scott Walker. Made those calls personally are wrecked personally. He personally talked to and shepherded through Foxconn heat personally talked to in shepherded through the Harry bow project, which which doesn't get any attention. But it's the only facility that the company build outside our outside Europe and the only facility in the United States, and it is its largest expansion in the history of the company, and we got it. And we got it. It happened to be announced like a month before the Foxconn deal. Subsumed by the Foxconn announcement, but again on its own it was the single largest economic expansion opportunity. Wisconsin had seen in its history. And then another one came within a month that that actually overwhelmed the the one that we should have we thought we'd be talking about. So that's because the governor personally personally handled and shepherded these projects into existence Tony needs to know that this isn't a hands off thing you have to be part of the process to go out there and get the business shepherd the business, hold the hands. Do the deals be part of this. And we can keep Wisconsin moving forward in terms of its economic expansion because nothing in the last ten years, it has been nothing short of absolutely remarkable. Yeah. The corridor eight ten years ago. You would not have guessed everything that's going on down there right now. You would never have guessed that's going to happen and having worked for. For three different governors and seeing them make these phone calls have been in the room. Whether you know been part of these things. It's what they do. But these companies even put Foxconn aside for a second these multinational companies who have multiple operations all over the place. They don't make these investments casually. They're not setting up lemonade stands here when they make an investment the size of what Foxconn or Heriberto or you can probably name one hundred of them. Do they don't make those decisions casually? Does. That mean, the thing's stays absolutely the same. Every second every hour every day all the way through the company's history. No, it doesn't. But in Foxconn case, I mean million tens of millions of dollars for the property, but they're hiring people like crazy there..

"I don't have any inside information here. So all I can go on with facts kind of saying because as I said Foxconn is in control of things here FOX, can can do whatever it is that they what? If they decide to do something other than manufacturing in Wisconsin. If they abandoned the Racine site, if they decide instead to do a big technological hub and make it not so much seen focused if they do a lot of engineering, and research and development and design work here as opposed you hands on manufacturing. They can do anything that they want to do. The only thing that they're required to do is reached certain job minimums, if they want to get any money from the state of Wisconsin. So as you said, they could do whatever it is that they want to do and try to figure out there for with that he is can be a little bit difficult, especially when you're getting sort of muddled explanations here. Now. The story in today's those paper Foxconn considers drastic change in plant report says. The headline is this big giant headlines. But when you read it, you realize that the headline said nothing, and that's because we really don't know anything Foxconn considers drastic change in plant. Well considers I think that's probably accurate considers. In other words. They haven't decided whether or not they're going to change anything or not considers means what am I considering tonight? Nothing. I'm sure I'm gonna do something that I haven't figured out what it is. What is the to do tonight? So big bucks game. They play the raptors anything else to do. I have nothing to do you got nothing going out of my life. I have a dull guy what else would I do. No, I still have snow on my satellite dish. Well, it's no way to get rid of it in the cold because I couldn't I got the super soaker to melt it, but I was afraid that if I shot anything up there to melted. It would just rephrase.

I don't want to just sit home and watch Netflix by myself tonight. Yeah. Maybe I will. The point that I make and listen to the word considers. Is the consider means the same as decides? Facts is deciding whether or not to make changes in what they're doing in Wisconsin. I think that's over. Yeah. They're deciding whether or not to make changes. I think you have to look very carefully at what is being said. And what is not being said both by Foxconn? And also since there is concerned here that what's actually motivating FOX is. They're freaking out over Tony Everts, and the lefty hacks that he has it is administration. That's stories percolating out there that the only thing that has changed is that Foxconn is still reeling over Scott Walker losing, and they're terrified of making a multimillion dollar billion multibillion dollar investment in a state that may not want them anymore. So let's dive into a few of the specific sentences in the story and try to analyze. This is from the statement Foxconn put out Wednesday night last night. Quote, we remain committed to the Wisconsin valley science and technology park project. The creation of thirteen thousand jobs into our long-term investment in Wisconsin. As we have previously noted the global market that existed. When the project was first announced has changed. Now, you listen to that that's two sentences, and there's just so much of their listen, we remain committed to the Wisconsin valley science and technology park project. That's the Racine project. The creation of thirteen thousand jobs that our long-term investment in Wisconsin. Now, maybe I'm reading too much into this. But they said Wisconsin, they didn't say Racine county. In other words, they didn't say that site. But they did say they're committed to the Wisconsin valley science and technology park project, but they didn't say that that project was the manufacturer of liquid crystal display panels. Maybe it's something else. The statement seems to me which FOX kind of say we are still committed to doing a major thing in Wisconsin. But it didn't precisely say that are still committed to doing what they said initially. They were going to be doing. Then the second part as we have previously noted the global market environment that existed when the project was first announced has changed. What's changed? Well, we know that in general there's been a slump and technology manufacturing you see companies like apple doing well on product sales of some products, but not necessarily another's. There's the whole thing going on with. Wow, we then you've got the whole trade situation between the United States and China, it's creating uncertainty, and as I said, there's this backdrop it which. You do get the strong sense that there are bad vibes right now between the people who work for Tony Iverson, FOX cod that there isn't that kind of bonding that Foxconn felt was in place before. Foxconn is still at the point in which they take a bath at it. But they can still pull the plug. They haven't put up any real buildings yet. Now for most people buying eighty five bazillion acres landed buying six office buildings around the state of Wisconsin. And so on that'd be the point of no return the point that you would not it'd be too late to turn around. But let's face it. They really haven't put in in terms of the overall cost of the project. They spend only a small portion of you know, they bought the land. They bought some office buildings. They haven't put up any major facility yet. They could still bail on this. If they think that may be Wisconsin's gonna go right back into the crappy tax held that it was before they could still bail. If they think they got a dork in here, as you know, in terms of political leadership that's going to be hard to deal with. So that might be a part of what's going on. Or maybe not again, I don't know. But I'm trying to read in terms of what people are saying Foxconn. Then put out a second statement last night. In the second statement, they provided more clarity than the first statement a quote from the sideline story. Wednesday evening. The company issued a second statement this time specifically saying it's still intends to build a Mount Pleasant amount of. Didn't do this right here for me. What do you mean the copy machine broke? I think your brain broke. I'm going to have to use the. Traded with story the jumped in. A key says. Go back to Tampa wherever you were..

"Opinion emotion. Passion piece is news talk eleven thirty w I s n. Welcome back here that Tony Everts is okay. With legalizing weed in Wisconsin, careful, what you wish for people careful what you wish for it says here, Tony Evert says he will make the first step toward pot legalization in the state of Wisconsin. Wisconsin governor Tony? Says. According to the wiscon- to speech to the Wisconsin technology council. His budget proposal will likely start the process of legalizing medical marijuana and other steps for full legalisation, including possibly calling for a statewide referendum. It would have to be a constitutional referendum because anything else if it were not a constitutional amendment, which of course, requires two consecutive ascensions by different state, legislatures different. So you need to do this state legislature needs to see to it. And then the next one would also need to agree to it to get a constitutional amendment legalizing pot, otherwise, it's just advisory. Either said he would sign a Bill Republican Senate majority. Scott FitzGerald says he doesn't support legalizing medical marijuana while rob Republican, Robin Vasu. He's open to it. Careful what you wish for people I bat before states had begun the process of legalizing pot two things made sense number one was that you would see the black market to Sapir at the black market in the criminal syndicate associated with pod. Which is a huge drug the most popular drug would cease to exist. And we would have a dramatic impact on the black market. In fact, rendering it almost completely irrelevant. The second the second contention was people who smoke weed smoke weed. Nobody else is gonna smoke weed who doesn't smoke weed just because it's legal both of those things have proved to be untrue. Now that we have experience with legalization, which is why it makes more sense to do a slow decriminalization. If you're actually. Favor of trying to get to the point where pot becomes mostly non-criminal than it does fully goes Asian number one. The black market is thriving. It is thriving it thrives in California it thrives in Colorado. It thrives in Canada in Canada because the taxes and regulation are so high the black market controls over ninety nine percent of the entire we'd market even though it's legal in California. It's over fifty percent of the market in Colorado. It's about fifty percent of the market market share for the black market hasn't diminished. If you're if you're if you're counting it as a percentage of all of the people using weed, well, then yes, you can say well, we've seen the black markets percentage of the market be reduced by fifty percent. But the actual number of people using weed using the black market has gone up because the actual number of people using weed has. Gone up. So the black markets thriving is doing fine. In fact, they the the folks who are who are interviewed for an article looking at the impact of legal weed on the black market say they like it. They like it because they can always undercut high regulatory barriers to smoking drugs. They can always do that. They have ways of getting around regulation. It's called being elicit drug dealers. They don't pay the taxes. They don't pay regulate regulatory costs. Their costs are getting it from point A where it's grown to point B where it's consumed. That's all they got to worry about now. Certainly there are some risks built into that. Death. Imprisonment, but those are risks a lot of people given the fact that it's purely one hundred percent of what they make beyond the cost of bringing that product to the illegal. Marketplace is there's anyway, Tony is I know that it's really popular to say legalize it. But if Wisconsin is going gonna go down the path of legal, we'd instead of just jumping in and saying more tax revenue for us. Consider the impact that it is going to have it is going to increase criminal activity is going to bring more people who are selling the drugs illicitly into a marketplace. That also sells the drugs legally. It is highly unlikely that the state of Wisconsin, we'll be able to offer the product once it is decided to take it substantial amount of taxation at a cost that is competitive with the black market. The other problem, of course, is the social chaos that is created when you have decided to make yourself a place where people considering the entire country is not one hundred percent legalized to make your state a place that attracts drug tourism. Now, that's not gonna affect me. And where I live, but it probably affects Madison it probably affects Milwaukee at probably affects Green Bay probably affects. Oh, claire. So to make sure that the amount of tax money that you're going to be gathering from the collection of taxes on legal weed is going to be enough to offset the necessary increased costs to handle the disorder. That is created by making the state a magnet for pot tourism. Careful what you wish for. Governments love legal weed, and they're never going to take the tax dollars never ever ever ever ever gonna take the tax dollars import straight into law enforcement or poured straight into anything that can handle what necessarily comes along with drunk tourism, homelessness vagrancy, they don't they don't ever use the dollars for that. They simply pour them into general purpose revenue and then use them for whatever they want to use them for. We're going to take a break here. When I come back. I just saw that pop up on my on my news headlines here legal weed in Wisconsin Tony ever says he's all for it. Okay. I mean at fifty thousand feet, I'm all for it too. But you know, what I level it makes a lot less sense. We'll take a quick break and be right back. Attorney Tom grieve here for divergent family law. Many.

I haven't seen yet. So far this year. Happy new year. Steve how're the first seven days of twenty nine thousand nine treating one James Whitson good better than a goalpost soldier. We played it. We had some fun with the the unfortunate missed by the bears kicker. Cody parkey last night. I as I was listening and watching this game. I can imagine that. There's this collective just cheer coming up out of the state of Wisconsin was probably measured by seismic detectors. That's how cool that was. All right. Let's talk some politics. Of course, today's inauguration day in Wisconsin. Tony the next governor of the state of Wisconsin. What should we expect in the short term? And then maybe a little bit longer than that. In the short term. You're going to see. It appears to be a lot of confusion coming out of the administration, whether they're not they're gonna pay laws. One day. They they're going to obey all the laws and then the next day. They not the got this proposal out there in their proposal out there. Until they actually have a coherent program put together. Just gonna be it's going to be kind of fun to watch the new administration takes power. Wisconsinite says should should expect. This Tony years was not prepared to be governor of Louis state of Wisconsin. He ran a minor comparatively speaking state agency or at the department of public instruction. And he didn't do it very well when he was over there. So now he's taking over the reins of state government is going to be a lot of growing pains as a result. And we're going to see some interesting proposals. Anything from a fifteen dollars an hour. Minimum wage to more spending for local municipalities, which will make them happy. If it ever happens to transportation spending that's going to go through the rough and we're going to. Funding for abortions. We're gonna see their proposal come out. I mean, it's just going to be one thing after another. It's one thing to make proposals. But when you have Republican significant public Republican majorities in the assembly and the Senate with the power to really control, your gender of Tony Everts, whatever he would like to do and whatever the democratic folks in Wisconsin would like to see based on the election results re- in reality. What is actually possible? Well, a large part of the of the state public policy a set through the state budget and through that process. So what you're gonna see as you're going to see Tony? Here's probably come out with a wishlist budget. He's going to send it over to the legislature. It's going to be a political document more than it is going to be a fiscal document. The legislature is not gonna take it seriously, and they're gonna come up with their own documents or the joint finance committee. The legislative where the Senate and the assembly have the joint committee to create the state budget in that'll be the budget. That'll that'll come out whether or not either. Vetos the entire thing or veto partially. That'll be the result of negotiations between Voss and infants Gerald in either in that three party negotiation is going to be more complicated because you could have conservatives in the state Senate, they're going to refuse to the budget on state transportation funding, and whether or not we're going to raise the gas tax. You're gonna have conservatives in the state assembly that are not going to budget other taxes that Tony is gonna wind. May remember Tony is talking about lifting the camp some local property tax. So there's a good chance that we're all going to be paying for it. In the end. It's going to be an interesting process to watch James wig, wages and the editor. Right, wisconsin. Joining me as he does every Monday morning. What do you expect Tony givers in his inauguration day speech to talk about the governor, the former governor soon to be former governor governor Walker used words like forward, Wisconsin. Wisconsin away jobs was a big focus early on in his tenure. What do you expect? Tony Everts to focus on the words and phrases. He used in his speech today. Well, there will be passing mentions to those kinds of things, and he's gonna talk about civilities already signaled that which is kinda funny because it's his party that has been the most uncivil with the last eight years, we have just one thing that you can say about governor Scott Walker. He's probably one of the most civil people that have ever held high public office. So you're gonna have that tone trying to be set to where they're going to try to claim the moral high ground that they're that. They're the civil sounding people that they're the friendly sounding people that they're gonna unite Wisconsin. This is going to be a lot of themes on that. And the reality is different. They're not going to unite Wisconsin. Wisconsin's a very divide saying it was very narrow election, and they'll be talking about how the need to work together. So you're going to have that theme over and over again. And then he's gonna talk about investing in education and investing in healthcare in when he says investing, he means raising taxes when when we talk about divided electorates divided governments. Is there any recipe with that formula with that those ingredients that means we can actually get anything done, or is it just going to be a few more years of gridlock. Well, we won't have authentic. Greg black not like what you've seen in Washington. DC right now. What's you'll have is the the good news is in Wisconsin. If you don't pass a budget on time, you just operate under the current state budgets, all there's not like a crisis that if the state budget doesn't pass out come July August. The news. We're going to hype it up that we didn't pass the state budget on time. And therefore, we're in a crisis. But the reality as the budget goes on state government goes on. But there will be things that will be accomplished there will there will have to be compromises, unfortunately between the legislature Everts. And as a result, you're gonna have either get a little in the legislature, get a little and otherwise you're gonna it's not gonna be two two different to at least in the next two years. Incoming governor Davis has promised that he actually threatened that he could veto the entire budget is that a realistic threat to you think it's realistic threatened that he's got enough votes, preventing override, but at the same time just doing that isn't gonna change anything, and it's just gonna come back to the negotiations. I one hundred you're going to see negotiations between the three parties before it gets to that point. Just a few minutes. Few seconds before we go to break. What is the one thing? You wouldn't be surprised to see happen with again divided government Wisconsin in the near term between Tony Uber's administration and the Republican led assembly and Senate. Well, I think that there's there's probably a good chance that they'll find the votes in the state Senate to overcome the conservative opposition to a gas tax increase. I think we can count on that or registration fee increase in. There's going to be more money diverted to local municipalities for the roads. Whether or not that that's a good idea. We can debate that. But I think that that's probably something that is going to come out of all this bottom line. Tony Evers coming in. We should expect some tax increases to be felt by the local tax payers in the next few years homeowners businesses he wants to wipe out the manufacturing credit the agriculture credit. I mean, we're talking about. Substantial tax increases at the local level because of his willing to allow property tax increases, no come up with excuses for it. They'll say it's for school safety or this or that. And so the Levy capsule will soon be leaky as James Madison editor right Wisconsin from the conservative side of the aisle. We'll have more conversation with James want to switch gears talk about the shutdown approaching record number of days. Now will it end? What's going to be the thing that gets it resolved? We'll discuss that with James waitressing next radio WTMJ eighteen.

"For the purposes of this study, they deal with only state and local taxes since the state can't control what happens with federal taxes. So this study deals, and I'm going to little bit slowly here because they want this part to sink it. It deals that the burden of taxes from the state and local level that would essentially be everything other than the federal income tax social security tax the Medicare tax sought. The state and local tax burden in Wisconsin. Fell in two thousand eighteen. To its lowest level. In fifty years. That's half a century. The story is reported in a release put out by the Wisconsin policy forum, and it didn't make its way into a few newspapers around the state. The Kenosha uses one of them. Now, they point out who knows what's going to happen in two thousand nine hundred. And given the fact that Tony Everts is already come in saying that he wants to have a tax increase in particular. He wants a big increase in corporate taxes. Add well, he hasn't itemized yet. He certainly going to push for a significant increase in the gas tax. So what happens to the tax burden one year from now, we don't know we also don't know how successful the Republican legislature is going to be in resisting Tony versus desire to raise taxes, but he inherits office with the state now with its lowest state and local tax burden. In fifty years. According to the report taxes accounted for ten point five percent of income. That's down marginally from ten point six percent in two thousand seventeen it reflects seven straight years of decreases in Wisconsin. The tax burden didn't go down because tax collections went down. But because income continues to grow at a faster rate than it is being taxed in the state..

This was a big enough issue nationally in two thousand nine that people honestly question whether Barack Obama was properly sworn in as president of the United States. Why is it that the media in this state isn't concerned or doesn't pay attention to detail when it's the new democratic governor possibly not being sworn into office properly or more accurately as I said screwing up literally the very first thing he was tasked with doing the very first duty you have to do as governor of the state of Wisconsin is follow along with the chief Justice of the state supreme court failed even in that basic task.

"Scott Walker I believe in stable stroke by governor of either party should be able to undo the work of the legislature negotiation. Nick that those are the kind of things that are in this Bill today, making sure that the practices that we had were cited at the table and neither was able to unilaterally do concern. I think that. Point bring eight April. Agenda too. That's Republican speaker of the Wisconsin state assembly, Robin, Voss and state Senate majority leader, Scott FitzGerald, justifying their power grab the proposal passed by the state assembly and Senate on December fifth will weaken the governor's ability to make rules that enact laws, and it gives lawmakers the ability to control appointees to the economic development agency, the sweeping changes also aim to prevent the incoming democratic attorney general Josh call from withdrawing the state from a lawsuit against the Affordable Care Act early. Voting would also be cut down to just two weeks prior to elections. That's a move clearly intended to suppress black votes in Milwaukee on meet the press on Sunday. Chuck Todd interviewed democratic governor elect Tony Everts and Todd offered a less than factual analysis saying that this Republican preemptive coup was essentially. Business as usual, and that Democrats have engaged in similar campaigns. Now, this has happened before and many legislature Democrats in fact have done this in the past two Republican governors and lame duck sessions and other states Chuck Todd offered no evidence to back up this claim and by all accounts such actions have been rare, particularly when you consider.
Wisconsin Democrats look at legal options on lame-duck bills
"In order to ram through a series of measures that that basically decapitate the executive branch and give the legislature itself powered over an enormous number of things, whether it's agencies, whether it's making the attorney general come to the legislature, and specifically to a committee with a Republican dominated committee within the legislature. To get permission to pursue lawsuits. Whether it's settlement money potentially in in lawsuits, that's all controlled by the legislature now and then limiting early voting which is very significant because Wisconsin had record turnout in two thousand eighteen and because of early voting which the legislature had tried to cut off and then a federal judge intervened and said, no it's unconstitutional. There were enormous numbers. Wisconsin citizens who voted early and the legislature is now in both houses have passed this that they need to get together on it. But they have limited early voting to two weeks. So instead of six weeks as it was here in Dane county, where we had presidential level turn out. They're going to have two weeks. Again. It's just an effort to suppress the will of the people and to concentrate power in the state legislature. Well in terms of the limits on the governor's appointment powers. Could you get some? Go into some of the specifics of what is actually happening with some of these agencies some of them, they're actually packing with more members that the legislation would have say over. Yes. So for example, the Wisconsin economic Development Corporation, which has replaced the Commerce Department under governor Scott Walker. It's a scandal. Played agency that hands out gifts to corporations that promise to create jobs. The legislature has taken away the governor's power to appoint the head of that agency. They're still working this out. It's still needs to be signed by Scott Walker. But this is where they're going. And there was debate on it as they walked into the studio, they they plan to pack the board so that until September. And this is the recent redo this as a four o'clock this morning, they plan to pack the board with Republican chosen members. So that the governor can appoint the head of the board anymore and the Republican legislature controls the makeup of the board after September. They say it will be balanced there'll be chosen by legislators from the Democratic Party and the Republican party. But they are what they are fundamentally doing is undoing Tony Everts campaign promise to get rid of this agency altogether because it is. Handed out tens of millions of dollars in taxpayer money to corporations that have failed to create jobs. I was Foxconn as well. The ex-con Foxconn, which is a big. Yeah. It's a big company that our state has given an enormous amount of subsidy money to and really is was a major issue in the campaign because it's a gigantic subsidy for this corporation that is not creating a lot of jobs and hiring people actually from Illinois. To make big split screens. I will probably be obsolete shortly. There are a number of corporations that have received tens of millions of dollars from the state of Wisconsin. In this Bill that the legislature is pushing through right now, they remove the requirement that those corporations even demonstrate that they're creating jobs that was a requirement that they were failing to meet, and it's the reason that the public is. So so up in arms against this Wisconsin, Economic Development Board, it's going to continue to exist. The Republicans are going to pack the board. And now they're gonna take away the requirement that the corporations they give money to taxpayer money to even show that they're doing anything in exchange for that money, Foxconn Welby be the reason why the governor of Wisconsin stop Scott Walker lost. I mean, the touting of Foxconn coming to Wisconsin.
"tony everts" Discussed on The Forecast with Harry Enten
"But in a south and the southwest outside of Nevada have historically, although they leaned a little bit more democratic have not been overly democratic and do Latinos in Arizona foot war, like California Latinos, or do they vote more like, Texas, Latinos or New Mexico, Latinos? And if it is California Latinos, that's very big deal and very good news for cursing cinema. If however it is more like the traditional southwest Latino, which has leaned a little bit towards the left, but not overwhelmingly so mcq Sallie Mae, in fact, hold on. And this is one of the reasons why when you talk to Democrats about AirAsia, Nevada the sun belt as they call it. They've you these states sort of a work in progress because the Latino vote is not firmly on the democratic side yet. And that's why this is sort of a while. Wildcard in that respect this year. Is it are they there for Democrats yet? Or is this a five to ten year work in progress? And yeah, and I think the question is is this statement of vote more like a state voted for Donald Trump? I just three and a half points. Or is it going to be a state that voted more like it's weighted average partisanship plus eight GOP the latter than excel has a real shot to win this. However, if this votes more like the state that Clinton only lost by three and a half points. Then cinema will ultimately end up victorious. All right. Shall we turn to a state a little bit cooler further north little bit? Yes. Moving on. Finally, we're going to look at the Wisconsin governor's race, President Trump himself. Was there campaigning for incumbent Republican Scott Walker just a couple of nights ago? Walkers running for a third term, but it's fourth time on the ballot. Giving his recall fight a few years back. His democratic opponent is Tony Everts an educator currently the state superintendent of schools. What do we see out there hearing well forecast for the first time in Scott Walker's career running in the last eight years for the governorship of Wisconsin actually has him as the underdog? The forecast has Tony Everts winning this race by four points and more than that. It's it's sort of a confluence of events. Right. Walkers approval ratings are net favorable ratings are underwater for the first time this close to an election bit for him either in two thousand ten two thousand twelve three cooler two thousand fourteen when he was running for a second full term, Trump is underwater in the statement. And this state that down from one by thing point seven five percentage points, excuse me, if it was actually point seven to my apologies. So he's underwater. And this is the first time that one of Walker's foes has a net favorable rating that's in positive territory, not negative Tom Barrett. When he ran into thousand ten and two thousand twelve was in negative territory. Mary Burke was a negative territory in two thousand fourteen the weighted average partisanship in. The state plus three GOP, so perhaps a little bit more towards the Republican side than you might necessarily think. But certainly not as Republican-leaning as our Zona. And finally one thing that I think we should keep in mind is the polling has been somewhat divergent in the state. Yes, the forecast says Scott Walker winning by four but the Marquette university law school poll, which is run by our friend. Charles Franklin, one of the better pollsters in the nation has actually tended to find more positive numbers for Walker had him ahead by one I believe in his last poll versus the mayor's poll, which has consistently shown that Tony Evert has been ahead by high single or low double digits. So we'll see exactly what happens and more than that. Just keep in mind that this was a state where the Paul said that Hillary Clinton was going to win. And obviously she didn't. Right. So you're saying it's a little too soon for me to start writing my story about Democrats making comeback in Wisconsin. And in the midwest. Or can we start drafting I think we can drift that story. But the question is whether or not. Walker is the outlier who survives or whether or not he is the prototypical Republican who had held his own over the last eight years, but has since gone the way of the Dover to ride. He's head. Rebecca, I mean, he gets elected beats the recall he gets elected again, he runs for president in the beginning very much thought of as a.

"We have a chance to restore some sanity in our politics. Well, with fifty eight days to go until election day. Here's another addition of our series ten to watch where we take a look at some of the races, the critical races in this year's midterm. Today, we look at the Wisconsin Senate race for governor or democrat, Tony Everts is challenging incumbent, Scott Walker Evert is polling ahead of wool Walker according to the real clear politics. Polling average making this one, a real fight for Walker, whose claim to fame is crippling the state's public sector unions join me now a Scott Ross executive director of one Wisconsin now. All right. So Scott, tell me what's happening here with Scott Walker. Why is he falling behind Tony vers-? Well, joy, thank you. You're having me. Scott Walker is a twenty five year career politician who will say and do and spend anything to win an election. He's raised and spent one hundred million dollars in his run for governor taking money from everybody. I mean, he's been taking money from the NRA for twenty five years. He's gotten about three and a half million dollars from. And the question is, you know, Scott Walker running this scorched earth campaign. Is it because the voters are finally done with Scott Walker and after a guy who ran twice for state office before he could legally rent a car has the political road come to an end for Scott Walker? Well, this is the question because that's been asked before after he signed that Bill really crippling the state's unions as public sector unions. It was thought that you know what Democrats are gonna be able to exact revenge in the next election instead he was reelected. So it does was kansin still have enough of democratic base to win statewide because they couldn't ask them. Then in the heat of that moment, how are they going to ask them? Now? Why think here's the big thing is that after again, walkers been governor for eight years now he's, you know, he ain't the same guy. Walker ran in in two thousand ten with a campaign that said, I drive a nine hundred ninety eight Saturn, and I take a Brown bag to Brown bag lunch to work with my ham sandwiches. We did a bunch of research. And found that since Scott Walker dropped out of the presidential race in two thousand fifteen, he has flown the state plane a thousand times at a cost of a million dollars doing things like having him himself picked up after he took a after, he had a haircut or flying himself to a back home. So he can go to a Basque era football game. I mean, this is not the same Scott Walker who was elected eight years ago and given the fact that the atmosphere is so toxic because Scott Walker has been such a loyal soldier for Donald Trump, people are excited about Tony. They're excited about his running mate Mandela, Barnes and Scott Walker is running a scorched earth campaign to try and try and win this last one. Yeah, very quick before we want to get a little bit about Tony vers in here, but Scott Walker tweet about standing for the national anthem. He's going with that gambit and none of this standing in the locker room either stand up beyond -able, blah, blah, blah. He's basically doing Donald Trump. Is that going to help him? Well. He when he went to that? Well, I mean it was it was obvious that Scott Walker knows he's in trouble. I mean, Tony versus stood up for kids his entire career fighting for education fighting and make sure our kids have have the chance and Walker went after Tony vers running-mate Mandela, Barnes and Mandela Barnes responded with a picture of him in a Colin Kaepernick shirt. The Democrats are clearly not gonna take the bait with Scott Walker and they are going to win. He hits punch back and punch back hard. I'm assuming that Mandela Barnes African American. I'm going to assume he is indeed, he's, he's, he's a millennial..
