On May 9, the Wisconsin Joint Finance Committee voted 11-4, along party lines, to strip Medicaid expansion and 131 policy items from Governor Tony Ever’s proposed budget. The move blows a 1.4 billion dollar hole in the state biennial fiscal plan, which Republicans will have to find a way to close. In addition, the vote knocked out automatic voter registration, medical marijuana legalization, a hike in the state minimum wage, drivers licenses for undocumented immigrants, among others, all major planks of Governor Ever’s 2018 campaign. Wisconsin Assembly 76th district Assembly Representative Chris Taylor was one of those four lonely votes against the JFC action. Chris Taylor joined host Brian Standing on Monday, May 13, 2019.
