Yesterday, Republican State Senator Len Fasano presented a proposal that he says would save the state nearly $2.2 billion by overhauling the state labor laws that are currently in place.
In response, Democratic State Senator Martin Looney said “These aren’t solutions. They are the same failed austerity policies that have damaged the economies of states like Wisconsin and Kansas.”
But is that true? Is Wisconsin’s economy failing under Gov. Scott Walker’s policies?
Today, I invited Jake Curtis, from the Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, to be my guest and discuss the actual impact that Act 10 has had on the state’s education system, economy and business climate.

The final show of the season. Always seems to so far away when the season starts, then suddenly.. it’s over.
Our guest today was CT State Senator-elect Len Suzio. We talk about Len’s plans for when he takes his seat in Hartford.
Thanks to Ben, Tom and MJ for another awesome season. I had a lot of fun and I hope you all did as well.
Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year to everyone!

Larry Rifkin took the day off, so I was invited to fill in for him on Talk of the Town for the day.
First hour, I talk about Fidel Castro and the Southern Poverty Law Center, before welcoming Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg to the show. Dr. Goldberg and I discussed the differences between the common cold and the flu, as well as strategies on how to avoid them and/or treat them.
In the second hour, I take some calls and then say hello to Kara Newman, the author of Shake, Stir, Sip: More Than 50 Effortless Cocktails Made in Equal Parts. I highly recommend this book.
Things get really busy in the third hour, first with Lois Anderson from the Friends of Mark Twain House to discuss the 36th Annual Holiday House Tour. I then speak to CT State Comptroller about the continuing budget crisis and whether the problem is finally being taken seriously in Hartford. And then I welcome Michelle Seiler-Tucker, author of Sell Your Business for More Than It’s Worth to talk about the prospects of a Trump economy.
