Protesters, with an inflatable "Chicken Don" shown in the background, rally against tax cuts benefiting the wealthy during a "Not One Penny" demonstration Saturday along Gorham Street at James Madison Park in Madison.⠀
The Republican remake of the federal tax code bound for a U.S. Senate vote as soon as this week is being decried by Wisconsin Democratic @senatorbaldwin as a "giveaway to the wealthiest few," while her potential GOP challengers are cheering President Donald Trump's bid for a once-in-a-generation tax-code overhaul.⠀
The Republicans officially running to face Baldwin next year are state Sen. Leah Vukmir, of Brookfield, and businessman Kevin Nicholson, of Delafield. Both Vukmir and Nicholson said they broadly support Trump's push for sweeping tax changes.⠀
The bill slashes taxes for businesses, including the corporate tax rate, which it would cut to 20 percent from 35 percent effective in 2019.⠀
The bill's impact for individuals is mixed, though most would see an initial tax cut. It eliminates tax deductions, including for state and local taxes, while increasing two widely used provisions in the individual tax code: the standard tax deduction and the child tax credit.⠀

Pass-through businesses make up the majority of small biz. It is important these small businesses get tax relief because they employ so many people in our communities. Good Luck, Sen. Ron Johnson, fighting to make the #TaxReform package even better. #WIright #WIPolitics

Have a great Saturday everyone. Here's your thought of the day:

Look how much fun JR Ross and I had talking about this week’s #wipolitics stories. You can watch us on @wisconsin.eye, and have this much fun, too.

I made a list, I checked it twice. #filed #tbt #wigov #wisdems #wipolitics #prouddemocrat

Lawmakers this week will take up measures aimed at promoting healthier eating among Wisconsin residents using food stamps and putting new limits on what kind of food can be purchased using the taxpayer-funded assistance.⠀
An Assembly committee on Tuesday will hold a public hearing on two bills: one that provides discounts on fresh produce and other healthy foods for recipients of the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, which is known as FoodShare in Wisconsin, and another bill that would put new restrictions on what kind of items can be purchased with food stamps.⠀
The hearing on the two bills is likely to renew a debate over whether the state should be seeking to control further what kind of groceries welfare recipients can buy — an effort that has failed in the state Legislature more than once in recent years and would require permission from the federal government.⠀

A state bill targeting so-called #sanctuarycities and counties would sow fear among Wisconsin's #immigrant population and impede police cooperation with them, its critics told a legislative panel Thursday.⠀
The Republican sponsor of the bill, which requires local law enforcement agencies to cooperate with federal immigration authorities, said it would help them apprehend dangerous criminals who also are immigrants living in the country illegally.⠀
The bill got its first public airing of the year Thursday inside a packed hearing room at the state Capitol. The chairman of the committee that heard the bill, Sen. Steve Nass, R-Whitewater, also is its sponsor.⠀
A Milwaukee group opposing the bill, @voces_mke, said it brought at least 500 opponents of the bill to the Capitol from Green Bay, Manitowoc, Milwaukee and Waukesha.⠀
The bill faces an uncertain future in the Legislature. It is similar to a Texas law that was partially blocked from taking effect by a federal judge earlier this year and is now before a federal appeals court.⠀

As the school year approaches, we’re taking a #FlashbackFriday to when #LWVWI visited @UWLax to help register students to vote! This fall, make sure to register either at home or on campus, and remember to vote in local elections no matter where you are. With social media, it is easier than ever to stay informed away from home.

#HarrietTubman, often nicknamed Moses for her unwavering selflessness and courage, is this week’s #WomensWednesday. The soul of the #UndergroundRailroad, Tubman guided many groups of slaves to freedom, despite hard-pressed efforts from slaveholders to capture her. Just last year, the federal government declared that she will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

Wisconsin’s capitol hasn’t always been in #Madison. Can you name the place where #WIPolitics began? A hint is that this place began use in 1836, serving the territory of Wisconsin. It is now on the National Register of Historic Places. (Sorry for the delay!)

The wonderful Scott Bauer, reporter for the Associated Press, sat in for Steve on this week's 'Rewind.' Scott and JR took an in-depth look at the proposed Foxconn plant. Watch the full program at wiseye.org. #wipolitics #foxconn #associatedpress

#FlashbackFriday in Spanish! As part of #GearUpToVote, #LWVWI worked to be language inclusive by including Spanish campaigns for voter registration campaigns. #LWVWI is a defender of democracy, which ultimately means being a champion of equity for marginalized populations - #VomasAVotar!

Welcome to the WI’s Capitol for this week’s #WomensWednesday! @lt.governorkleefisch has served as @ScottWalker’s Lieutenant Governor for the entirety of his terms, being the Wisconsin’s first Lieutenant Governor to face and win a recall election. She’s lived throughout the Midwest, in #Michigan, #Ohio, and #Wisconsin.

Sadly, there have been no female governors of Wisconsin for last week’s #TriviaTuesday. However, the past three lieutenant governors, representing both #Democrats and #Republicans have all been women! This week, the question is: how many members does @lwvus have?

This historic picture (from @WisconsinHistoricSociety) shows just how old the #LWVWI really is! Hence this week’s #FlashBackFriday to nearly 100 years ago, the time of #AlicePaul, to show just how much progress and evolution the #LeagueOfWomenVoters has catalyzed.

Capital Times political reporter Jessie Opoien sat in as guest host on this week's episode of 'Rewind: Your Week in Review.' She even took time to sign the wall in our green room. Watch the full episode at wiseye.org! #CapitalTimes #WisconsinEye #wibudget #wipolitics #wisconsincapitol

This picture of #AlicePaul is over 100 years old, yet her legacy still remains for this week’s #WomensWednesday. She grew up a Quaker, being educated with the philosophy that men and women were equal. Carrying this paradigm throughout her college and suffragist life, she was a champion of the #19thAmendment and #EqualRights.

Regarding last week, there are 105 women in #Congress; thanks to @peter.barger for participating. This #TriviaTuesday is #WiPolitics style! How many female governors has Wisconsin been led under? Bonus if you can guess how many lieutenant governors as well. Who is your favorite governor of the #DairyState since 1848?

Going #UpNorth for this week’s #FlashbackFriday! Our #LWV of Ashland and Bayfield Counties was a summer destination this past year not only to go to local festivals and see Lake Superior, but also to engage with the local league’s work on the unique challenges of rural poverty in Northern Wisconsin.

One of three awesome women serving on the #SupremeCourt, #SoniaSotomayor was nominated and confirmed in 2009, this summer marking her eighth year serving as a justice. Sotomayor is the nation’s first Latina justice and she was the justice to swear in @JoeBiden during his 2013 inauguration ceremony.

This week’s #TriviaTuesday is moving out of #Wisconsin and into #WashingtonDC! In honor of last week’s #WomensWednesday, the question is how many women currently serve in #Congress? Last week’s winner was @korickzenz, who was two away (#LWVWI has 20 leagues).

Last summer we asked citizens to ask why they vote and here's a #FlashBackFriday to a response! Answers were both locally and globally focused. Comment below why you vote with #IVoteBecause.

This #WomensWednesday is a blast from the past! #JeannetteRankin was the first female elected to the Congress (in the House) and served two terms, each one during the two World Wars. Elected first in 1916, she went to Washington before the country had achieved universal suffrage.

#TriviaTuesday number two! We’re thinking about #Wisconsin this week. As #LWVWI is a growing region of local leagues, how many local leagues are in our state? One hint is that we have a few leagues that are just starting up, so think big! ● Last week’s answer was #BetsyRoss, congrats to @teenvote!

#FlashBackFriday to last summer when the #LWVWI visited cities and towns across #Wisconsin for our #GearUpToVote campaign! We went from Appleton to Whitewater and everything in between. Our goals were to register and inform voters for last year’s elections.

For our second #WomensWednesday, we’re celebrating @SenatorBaldwin! Tammy Baldwin is a trailblazing politician, serving as Wisconsin’s first female senator and the nation’s first openly gay senator. She has been instrumental in working across the aisle to craft legislation which will aide the lives of the Americans everywhere.

It's #TriviaTuesday! In honor of #independenceday, what famous woman designed America's first flag?

Announced creation of Speaker's Task Force on Foster Care. #Wisconsin #wipolitics

For our first post we're kicking off #WomensWednesday! This week is Carrie Chapman Catt, the founder of @leagueofwomenvoters in 1920. She was born in Wisconsin and went on to study science, teach, become a reporter, and eventually found the LWV alongside many other historical icons.

Made a new friend tonight on West Washington. #madison #wipolitics

Fred Risser, the longest-serving state lawmaker in American history, turned 90 this month. This year brought that and another milestone: his 60-year-mark serving in the state Legislature, to which he first was elected state Assemblyman in 1957.⠀
Risser, D-Madison, was elected to the state Senate in 1962 and has been there since, representing much of Madison, including its west side. He has won 18 elections and counting — the last three unchallenged, including his re-election last fall.⠀
A U.S. Navy veteran who served in the final days of World War II, Risser is among the few veterans of that era — who dominated U.S. public life for decades — still in elected office.⠀
