Dad, husband, baseball coach, writer, community activist and crappy guitar player...I tend to stand a little to the left on most issues. I don't get my news from Fox "News" - and neither should you.
What we witnessed this afternoon in Madison was not only a rear-ended assault on the civil liberties of nearly 150,000 civil servants in our state, but also an all-out declaration of war against the middle class. Their legislation tonight makes all state employees second-class citizens and we should be ashamed, outraged and ready to face-off with our enemy.
"The labor movement is people. Our unions have brought millions of men and women together, made them members one of another, and given them common tools for common goals. Their goals are goals for all America - and their enemies are the enemies for progress. The two cannot be separated." ~ John F. Kennedy
The Republican Party has just shown that they are the enemies for progress, the enemies for all of working America, the enemies of civility and the enemies of democracy.
SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!
It is time to recall the Republican Senators who voted for this bill and will vote for the budget repair bill to strip $800 million from public education and $500 milion from Medicaid, BadgerCare and SeniorCare.
Join the fight to bring back democracy.
"All that harms labor is treason to America." ~ Abraham Lincoln, (Republican)
