And so it is that we live in a world where actual journalists who get paid actual money for their work compare reasonable refugee policy skeptics holding reasonable national security concerns to cruel hatemongers turning away baby Jesus from the inn. There is no middle ground, you see; there is only bigotry. I’ve had more thoughtful debates with my 3-year-old, and he honestly thinks one day he’s doing to grow a full set of T. rex teeth.

Assemblyman Quinn was in attendance and gave us an update on the upcoming bills and general Madison antics.
A very good discussion on the idea of a patrician GAB board is found here.
It seems the Democrats are up to their usual tricks of using last minuet amendments, bills introduced without discussion, and whatever else they can come up with to try to score political points and generally disrupt and obfuscate for the sake of their offended "minatory" status. Spoiled two year olds comes to mind. If you have any questions, comments or concerns regarding bills please contact Assemblyman Quinn.

Progressives United PAC, the PAC created by Feingold in 2011 after being defeated by current Wisconsin Sen. Ron Johnson, has contributed a meager five percent of its expenditures to Democrats running for office since its founding. Its stated mission is to give “progressives a voice in our elections, and to support candidates that will stand up to corporate influence and oppose those who blindly push the agenda of their corporate backers.” Full story
State Representative • Serving the 75th Assembly District
Below is a brief explanation of the bills coming forward that deal with abortion and planned parenthood. Please reach out to me if you have any further questions.
Current law prohibits a person from knowingly and for valuable consideration acquiring, receiving, or otherwise transferring a human organ. Many pro-choice leaders will argue that the body parts of aborted babies (fetuses) do not count as a human organ. This bill, AB 305, prohibits a person from knowingly and for valuable consideration acquiring, receiving, or otherwise transferring a fetal body part in this state. A fetal body part is a cell, tissue, organ, or other part of an unborn child who is aborted by an induced abortion. It alsoprohibits experimentation, even if used for valuable consideration (research).
Things to remember and think about…..
There are currently Title X federal dollars that subsidize Planned Parenthood in Wisconsin. AB 310 requires our Department of Health Services to distribute these funds first to the Well-Woman Program and public entities, including state, county, and local health departments and health clinics. However, no recipient of the funds can provide abortion services, make referrals for abortion services, or have an affiliate that provides abortion services or makes referrals for abortion services.
To be clear, this bill does not mean we are denying federal dollars from coming into the state. Instead, counties and organizations in our counties that provide health services will actually have the ability to receive some of the money, as it is currently all being funneled to Planned Parenthood. This bill should increase access to health care in our communities.
AB 311 is slightly more complicated. Currently, there is a federal program, 340 B, that gives discounts on pharmaceutical drugs to comprehensive health care clinics. Since 2009, the various health care clinics in the state, including Planned Parenthood, have been charging federal medical assistance more than the cost of actually receiving the drugs, and using this program as a revenue source. This is directly subsidizing Planned Parenthood, who is the largest abortion provider in the State of Wisconsin. However, it is also subsidizing other clinics who do not perform abortions.
If this bill passes, it will further remove funding from Planned Parenthood, which I support. However, it has the potential to close down other clinics which provide healthcare services to the poor. Also, if these clinics do not use the 340 B program, they may be charging federal medical assistance far more, which would increase the costs to the state and federal government since the drugs are no longer agreed to at a lower price.
I am still uncertain on how I will vote on this bill.
As far as I can tell, there are only three unassailable constitutional rights left in the United States: the right not to be “discriminated” against, the right to have an abortion, and the right to have a gay marriage. In the eyes of liberals, nothing — not the freedom of association or religion or anything else mentioned in the First Amendment or Second Amendment — will ever supersede these consecrated rights.
