Evers Administration Fails to Implement Law

Rogue administration.

Wisconsin officials faced an Oct. 1 deadline to put in place drug screening requirements for certain FoodShare recipients. But three weeks later, the state Department of Health Services has yet to implement them.

A DHS official didn’t indicate in a Monday email to the Cap Times that the department has a timeline for doing so.

It’s not uncommon for agencies to delay the implementation of certain changes. But DHS also has yet to submit a report or any updates to the Legislature’s budget committee on its plan to put in place the drug screening, testing and treatment requirements for certain non-disabled adults without children that are participating in the FoodShare Employment and Training program.

That requirement — as well as the Oct. 1 implementation deadline — was included in legislation approved under former Republican Gov. Scott Walker’s administration. But a review of DHS reports to the Joint Finance Committee didn’t uncover any related to the FSET drug screening provisions, including any requests for a timeline extension to implement the requirements.

    Liberals are for regulating the productive, but are lax in regulating welfare.

    If they have money for drugs, there is no need to enable drug use with food stamps.

    Evers is an enabler.

  2. Mar

    I see this going to court and Evers will be forced to implement this.
    If this happens, Evers will then deliberately sabotage the program.

  3. jjf

    Kevin, they don’t drug-test companies who want subsidies and tax breaks, do they?  Why are those people using their money for drugs when they could be using it for expanding their companies and hiring new people?

  4. Kevin Scheunemann


    I told you, all for that!

    This program is passed and in place, why is your guy holding up progress?

  5. Jason

    Don’t bother with jjf, he has proven that he can’t understand nuance and context.  He actually thought that Walker was telling people it’s ok to take your newborn baby home from the hospital and kill it.   Imagine that!

  6. Mar

    jjf, who from the companies would you drug test? All the employees? Just the CEO? What about shareholders? What about companies that have their offices in other states or over seas?

  7. jjf

    Which family members on food stamps would you like to test?  All of them?  What about their kids?  Cousins who live in the household?

    What’s next, you think they have too much jewelry and too nice of a cell phone and must be spending too much on their hair?

    Why when a company gets public benefits, no one questions whether the principals aren’t wasting their money in ways we don’t like, too?

    Kevin, what would Jesus do?

    Mar and Kevin, I think Jesus would say we feed hungry people because they’re hungry and not because we think they’re worthy.

  8. jjf

    Jason, when I showed you Trump saying exactly that, and then you say this, you think I’m the one who’s on drugs?

  9. Mar

    jjf, that’s how, I think medicare is like.
    No, not the kids, just the adults. But, then if the adults do test positive, I have no problem with the children being tested but only for purposes to see if there is child abuse/neglect going on.
    And actually, there are supposed to be members of government who are supposed to be overseeing the spending and if it is being spent correctly.

  10. Jason

    >you think I’m the one who’s on drugs?

    More proof of a fundamental lack of comprehension.  Thinking you’re on drugs instead of just incompetent would be unjust to all drug abusers.

  11. jjf

    Jason, so what is your nuanced view of what Trump said about swaddled birthed murdered babies?

  12. Pat

    “Thinking you’re on drugs instead of just incompetent would be unjust to all drug abusers.”


  13. Kevin Scheunemann


    Jesus would feed their spirit as well as their bodies.

    He would tell them to go and sin no more.

    Since you libs refuse to feed the spirit through the Gospel, best we can do to protect them from ongoing godlessness is drug test.

    Enabling bad behavior is destructive.

    And yes, I would test anyone in household listed on application.

    Staying off drugs in order to get free food is not too much to ask.

  14. Jason

    What Trump said does not support your claim…


    ” you still have politicians today claiming that people can have a baby, take it home, and then decide to kill it.”


    Sorry to say, but you’re about as nuanced as dry toast or room temperature oatmeal.

  15. dad29

    Tokin’Tony doesn’t want drug testing because he may then have to stop taking his salary.

  16. jjf

    Dad29, do you know anyone who smokes dope?

    Jason, again, tell me what you think Trump was talking about.

  17. Jason

    >Jason, again, tell me what you think Trump was talking about.


    Sorry, Creamed Corn, that you can’t get it yourself.  I’m not going to help you.

    “The baby is born, the mother meets w/the doctor. They take care of the baby. They wrap the baby beautifully. Then the doctor and mother determine whether or not they will execute the baby.”

    Do you think that happens?

  19. Mar

    jjf, it doesn’t happen very often, but there are people, if this was an abortion situation, would allow this. This includess old Russ Feingold.

  20. Pat

    “ Sorry, Creamed Corn, that you can’t get it yourself. I’m not going to help you.”


  21. jjf

    I’ve never heard such a thing about Feingold or anyone else.  Where did you ever see such a suggestion?

  22. dad29

    Feinie voted to allow partial-birth abortions.   He learned well from Hitler and Mengele.

    As to dope-heads:  I suppose it’s possible that I know some.  None wear a sign, and none indulge in my presence.

  23. Mar

    In 1996, Senator Rick Santorum asked Senator Russ Feingold the following regarding partial-birth abortion on the floor of the Senate. “Let’s assume this procedure is being performed for the reason you’ve stated and the head is accidentally delivered. Would you allow the doctor to kill the baby?

    Senator Feingold responded, “I am not the person to be answering that question. That is a question that should be answered by a doctor and by the woman who receives advice from the doctor.”

  24. MjM

    Jiffy pouts: “I’ve never heard such a thing about Feingold or anyone else. ”

    Fat, drunk, and stupid is no way to go through life, son.

    “If a mother is in labor, I can tell you exactly what would happen. The infant would be delivered. The infant would be kept comfortable. The infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother,” – Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D)

    “New York’s RHA [signed into law Jan 21, 2019 by NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) ] also repealed a section of the public health law that required the following: that abortions after 12 weeks be performed in a hospital; that an additional physician be present for abortions after 20 weeks to care for “any live birth that is the result of the abortion”; and that such babies be provided “immediate legal protection under the laws of the state of New York.”

    “According to the suit, Williams, then 18, discovered while being treated for a fall that she was 23 weeks pregnant. She went to a clinic to get an abortion on the morning of July 20, 2006, after receiving medication and instructions the previous day.

    Renelique was not at the clinic, however, and Williams was told to wait for him. She was given two pills and told they would make her ill. When she complained of feeling ill, clinic staff members gave her a robe and told her to lie down in a patient room, the suit says.

    Renelique was still not present when Williams “felt a large pain” and delivered a baby girl, according to the suit.

    “The staff began screaming and pandemonium ensued. Sycloria watched in horror and shock as her baby writhed with her chest rising and falling as she breathed.”

    A clinic co-owner entered the room and used a pair of shears to cut the baby’s umbilical cord, the suit said. She “then scooped up the baby and placed the live baby, placenta and afterbirth in a red plastic biohazard bag, which she sealed, and then threw bag and the baby in a trash can.”

    Staff at the clinic did not call 911 or seek medical assistance for Williams or the baby, the suit said.

    Renelique arrived at the clinic about an hour later and gave Williams a shot to put her to sleep. “She awoke after the procedure and was sent home still in complete shock,” the suit said.

    Police were notified of the incident by an anonymous caller who told them the baby was born alive and disposed of.”

  25. jjf

    As for Renelique, that’s not public policy.  He lost his license, was anyone ever charged?

  26. dad29

    As usual, Snopes is wrong on the substance.

    Northam did not “state he would execute a baby after birth.”

    Here’s the quote:

    “The infant would be delivered, the infant would be kept comfortable, the infant would be resuscitated if that’s what the mother and the family desired, and then a discussion would ensue between the physicians and the mother.”

    The ‘discussion’ would not be about whether to use Pampers or cloth diapers.  It would be whether to off the baby.  Snopes says it is ‘unclear.’  But it’s not; Snopes is trying to cover Northam’s ass.



  27. Jason

    Don’t forget Dad, that Northam has had months to respond to requests to clarify from Snopes…….. and nothing.

  28. Jason

    Also remember that context and nuance are lost on Jiffy… he shown that countless times this week so far.  :(

    “ Also remember that context and nuance are lost on Jiffy… he shown that countless times this week so far. :(”

    Wow, look at Pat. He learned a new word.

  31. MjM

    Jiffy falls for it: “Snopes says…”

    Pro Tip: When you need to cite people who feel it important to ‘fact check’ obvious parodies you don’t gain credibility.

    Not that you ever had any.

    Jiffy complains: “As for Renelique, that’s not public policy. ”

    Perhaps, except at Planned Parenthood….

    ‘Longtime abortion doctor Forrest Smith testified Wednesday that some of the abortion procedures recommended by Planned Parenthood in 2015 videos released by a pro-life group would have resulted in “live birth.”

    Smith suggested to a San Francisco court the videos confirm that Planned Parenthood recommends abortion methods that would allow for harvesting fetal tissue and organs for sale to medical researchers. Smith’s testimony agreed with accusations made by Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden and member Sandra Merritt.

    After reviewing a presentation given by gynecologist Alisa Goldberg at a 2014 Planned Parenthood conference, Smith said the abortion methods Goldberg described would force a woman into “tumultuous labor.” The process would end in “fetal expulsion,” in which “the fetus comes out without any assistance from the abortion doctor, no instrumentation.”

    “Very few people in abortion, outside of Planned Parenthood, do that,” Smith said. “There’s no question in my mind that at least some of these fetuses were live births.”

    “No question it’s alive,” he added.

    These procedures, Smith said, result in death “by neglect” if doctors do not “institute promptly all resuscitative care” to the fetus. Still practicing abortions himself, Smith said he believes abortions should be performed in the “fastest, safest way” possible and only after informing the woman exactly what would happen.’


    ‘ Jill Stanek worked for a year at Christ Hospital in Oak Lawn, Illinois, as a registered nurse in the Labor and Delivery Department. She had chosen Christ Hospital because it was a Christian hospital and thought that because it was Christian it would not condone abortions. In fact, it turned out that Christ Hospital practiced live birth abortions. They were perfectly willing to murder a child that had been born alive.

    Stanek soon discovered that the method Christ Hospital used to murder babies was induced labor, aka, “live birth abortions.” For this particular abortion procedure doctors do not attempt to kill the baby in the uterus – the goal is to deliver a premature baby which is allowed to die during the birth process or soon thereafter. To commit induced labor abortion, a doctor or resident inserts a medication into the mother’s birth canal close to the cervix. The cervix is the opening at the bottom of the uterus that normally stays closed until a mother is about 40 weeks pregnant and ready to deliver. This medication irritates the cervix and stimulates it to open early. When this occurs, the small second or third trimester pre-term, fully formed baby falls out of the uterus, sometimes alive.

    By law, if an aborted baby is born alive, both birth and death certificates must be issued. Ironically, at Christ Hospital the cause of death often listed for live aborted babies is “extreme prematurity,” an acknowledgement by doctors that they have caused this death. What happened to their oath to do no harm?

    It is not uncommon for a live aborted baby to linger for an hour or two or even longer. At Christ Hospital one of the aborted babies lived for almost an entire eight-hour shift. Some of the babies are born healthy because Christ Hospital will also abort for life or “health” of the mother, and also for rape or incest. In the event that an aborted baby is born alive, they receives what the hospital refers to as “comfort care,” defined as keeping the baby warm in a blanket until she dies. Parents may hold the baby if they wish. If the parent who procures the death doesn’t want to touch her child, a staff member cares for the baby until they die. Unfortunately, there isn’t always staff around to comfort the dying child so they are taken to the “Comfort Room,” which allows the “parents” to have pictures taken of the child they discarded. The Comfort Room also includes baptismal supplies, gowns and certificates, foot printing equipment and baby bracelets for mementos‘

    ‘Sherry West, of Bear, said she was loyal to Gosnell – who is now facing multiple counts of murder for allegedly killing children after they were delivered alive at his clinic – but said the incident “really freaked me out.”

    When Assistant District Attorney Joanne Pescatore pressed the 53-year-old West for specifics about the incident, West struggled to answer, clearly uncomfortable with the memory.

    “I can’t describe it. It sounded like a little alien,” West testified, telling a judge and Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas jury that the body of the child was about 18 to 24 inches long and was one of the largest babies she had seen delivered during abortion procedures at Gosnell’s clinic.

    West said she saw the child, whose face and features were not yet completely formed, lying on a glass tray on a shelf and she told a co-worker to call Gosnell about it and fled the room.’
