Wisconsin State Rep. Dianne Hesselbein | Gerrymandered Districts and Tax Cuts vs. Higher Wages

Civil Discourse | Progressive Radio; Grassroots media; current events; history; Democrat views; Republican views; liberal; conservative
A great episode this week! Senator Peter Bear and Eric Brant are joined by Wisconsin State Rep. Dianne Hesselbein who has proposed new rafting regulations in Wisconsin after the death of a young woman on the rapids. Hear our discussion on the push for redistricting reform. How does gerrymandering undercut democracy? How does it effect the way your legislators vote on laws that effect you? Scott Walker says that a raise in the minimum wage is "political grandstanding" as he promotes a tax cut on the wealthy. Mary Burke supports giving the working poor a wage increase of over $5,000.00 per year, but Scott Walker believes that a $150.00 tax cut for "the average homeowner" will be better for the economy. Learn about all of this and much more on this episode of Civil Discourse.
