  • Walker Rejects Kenosha Casino

    Governor Scott Walker said he was protecting Wisconsin taxpayers -- not his national political standing -- when he rejected the 800-million dollar Kenosha casino.  Walker announced his long-awaited decision this morning, just one day before he's scheduled to appear with other possible G-O-P White House candidates in Iowa.  The gathering comes about a year before next January's Iowa presidential caucuses.  The conservative National Review says some political activists believe Walker would take "real risks of leaks in his Iowa coalition if he either approves expanded gambling," or does not act on a right-to-work law for Wisconsin.  The governor told reporters in Milwaukee that the timing of his casino announcement was not related to his appearance at the Iowa Freedom Summit in Des Moines.  Walker said the state might have had to pay the Potawatomi tribe hundreds of millions of dollars to make up its lost revenues due to the Menominee's Kenosha casino.  He also said the state might have to had to repay the Potawatomi for its previous payments to Madison under its gaming compact. Democrats were livid, saying Walker put White House ambitions over the prospect of 10-thousand new jobs and millions of gambling tourists at Kenosha. Read More
  • Congress Members Want VA Pain Management Hearings

    Three members of Congress want public hearings on the pain-management practices of veterans' hospitals nationwide.  That's after doctors at the V-A Medical Center in Tomah allegedly over-prescribed opiate painkillers, resulting in the death of a patient from Stevens Point.  Democrats Ron Kind of La Crosse and Tim Walz of Minnesota have asked the House Veterans' Affairs Committee to examine the V-A's pain management procedures.  Wisconsin Democrat Tammy Baldwin asked for a similar hearing by the Senate veterans' panel.  Kind said solutions must be found nationally, so all veterans get appropriate pain treatments. Walz said "bad actors" must be rooted out to ensure that veterans get the best care possible.  Tomah's medical chief-of-staff David Houlihan was re-assigned last week as part of an investigation by the V-A.  That was after the Center for Investigative Reporting found that the numbers of opiates given to Tomah's hospitalized veterans grew by 500-percent from 2004-through-2012. Wisconsin Senate Republican Ron Johnson said the V-A has had an acting inspector general for over a year.  He wants the White House to name a permanent inspector general to investigate cases like the one in Tomah.
