Scott Walker Pushing Drug Testing For Welfare Recipients

It didn’t work in Florida, as it was too expensive, and they found that not enough welfare recipients were on drugs. And it’s unconstitutional. It won’t work in Wisconsin. Medicaid recipients in Wisconsin would be required to undergo drug testing and could be limited in how long they can receive benefits under measures proposed Thursday […]

The upcoming Supreme Court  case that conservatives hope will destroy Obamacare, King v.

Three state agencies in Wisconsin who are tasked with implementing voter ID for the Nov. 4 election say they have no additional money set aside to help voters and state workers comply with the newly reinstated requirement. In addition, there is no money for public information or an outreach campaign. Municipal clerks in Wisconsin’s two […]

The shortfall now is $281 million, and it’s growing. Wisconsin tax collections for the past year came in 2 percent short of estimates, the state Department of Revenue reported Thursday, news that won’t require immediate emergency action by the Legislature but that puts the state’s budget on track to be out of balance next year.
