    "In 60 days you can take Wisconsin back. It's that simple.
 

    This morning citizens from around the state took the first steps by filing recall papers against key Republican Senators who have stood with Scott Walker and pushed his partisan power grab that will strip thousands of middle class teachers, nurses, librarians and other workers of their right to collective bargaining. And we learned just last night that their disastrous budget that will cut millions from our schools and universities.

    In 60 days you can take Wisconsin back by recalling the Republican Senators who have decided to push Scott Walker's divisive attack on the rights of workers and his assault on schools, universities and local communities. Can you contribute $60 today to support the Democratic Party's recall efforts?


    Make no mistake, these Republican Senators are vulnerable to recall for their radical partisan overreach. Senator Randy Hopper won his last election by just 184 votes. And Alberta Darling won her last race by only 1,007. By recalling just three of the eight Senators we are targeting, we can regain control of the Senate.


    But we need your help today. The clock is ticking and we have just 60 days to collect the signatures we need to force a recall. Every day and every dollar counts.
 


    If we can recall at least three Senators and regain control of the Senate, we can end the ugly games Republicans in the legislature have played in the last few days -- unplugging phone lines, bolting windows inside the Capitol shut, and withholding the paychecks of Democratic legislators."

    I LOVE it. And Walker's next. I hope he enjoys his year in office because there are more people in the capital right now than is required to recall him. Ha! Ha!

    If these Republicans would stop being ideologues and lapdogs of the very rich and try to actually fix their budgets, they would find Dems, unions, etc. willing to meet them half way.

    Yup.
    What Walker is doing is a travesty.
    That's why a majority of WI residents and a majority of the American people DISAPPROVE of his arrogant power grab.
