Doyle began the show talking about last Thursday’s voting session, where he had COVID and Republicans almost had an Assembly supermajority, which would allow them to veto override just about everything Gov. Tony Evers has managed to accomplish. This is where the “infamous “harmonic groan,” comes into play.
After that, we discussed the continuing fight over a $4 billion budget surplus and how nobody is legitimately negotiating.
Ended the show discussing the multifaceted game of impeaching a newly-elected state Supreme Court justice, using bias retired justices to justify or distract from that action, and throwing an entire new system of drawing maps into the mix, with no public hearings and 48 hours for the Assembly to vote on it.
