Wisconsin Opens for Business

Wisconsin Opens Up

This week, Wisconsinites reacted quickly to the State Supreme Court ruling striking down the extension of Governor Evers' Safer at Home order.

I have always believed the vast majority of our economy should be deemed essential and continue to operate with appropriate safety measures. I urge the state legislature and Governor Evers to recognize this fact and work together to implement a set of guidelines that let people start to go back to work and resume their lives in as safe a manner as possible.

Here are a list of resources to help you make decisions about staying safe as Wisconsin opens back up for business.

Unmasking Michael Flynn

Fox News Interview

This week my committee received a list of individuals who requested the unmasking of Lt. General Michael Flynn and others who received access to that information. This information raises many questions and the officials listed should confirm whether they reviewed this information, why they asked for it and what they did with it. We are making this public because the American people have a right to know what happened.

We are noted in this country for the peaceful transition of power and respecting voters' wishes. Members of the Obama administration did not respect that tradition. This unmasking revelation has created a lot of questions that need to be answered all the way up to Vice President Biden and President Obama.

Connecting with Wisconsinites

It was a pleasure talking to you this week during my 71st telephone town hall.

We called out to 100,000 Wisconsinites and talked about the COVID-19 pandemic, getting Wisconsinites back to work and our country back on track.

Over the years, we have reached nearly 4.5 million people doing these telephone town halls and I've answered more than 1,000 questions.

Wisconsin Eye Interview

Wi Eye Remote Interview

This week, I had a 30 minute conversation with Steve Walters of Wisconsin Eye about the COVID-19 crisis.

We talked about vaccines, and while I'm hoping and praying that researchers develop a vaccine quickly, we cannot rely solely on that. We must work on better therapies and letting doctors be doctors and practice medicine so they can explore different ways to treat this disease. We need to think outside the box and encourage doctors to use their full off-label prescribing rights.
