I AM GOING TO TYPE IN LARGE FONT ABOUT AN IMPORTANT ISSUE.

EVERYONE KNOWS HOW WISCONSIN GOVERNOR SCOTT WALKER IS TRYING TO STRIP PUBLIC EMPLOYEES OF THEIR RIGHTS FOR COLLECTIVE BARGAINING.

AND HOW HE'S REFUSING TO NEGOTIATE WITH THEM AT ALL.

AND HOW THE WISCONSIN 14 -- THE 14 WISCONSIN SENATE DEMOCRATS -- HAVE FLED THE STATE TO PREVENT THE GOP FROM GETTING QUORUM.

AND PASSING THIS BILL.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT MAKING 'SHARED SACRIFICE.' THE UNIONS HAVE ALREADY AGREED TO THE CUTS WALKER WANTS TO IMPOSE ON THEM. THIS IS AN ALL OUT ATTACK ON THE MIDDLE CLASS AND WORKER'S RIGHTS.

IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW ANY OF THAT, CONGRATS, YOU NOW DO.

IF YOU THINK UNIONS AREN'T NECESSARY, BECAUSE WE HAVE WORKER'S RIGHTS NOW, HOW THE HELL DO YOU THINK WE GOT THEM? WHO THE HELL DO YOU THINK FIGHTS FOR THE WORKERS WHEN THEY'RE VIOLATED?

THE GOP ARE TRYING TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THESE MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT UNIONS TO STRIP THEM OF THEIR POWER.

MOVEON.ORG IS HOLDING PROTESTS IN SOLIDARITY IN EVERY STATE CAPITOL AND MANY MAJOR CITIES TOMORROW.

LOOK FOR THE CLOSEST PROTEST HERE: http://pol.moveon.org/event/events/index.html?rc=tw&action_id=238

MOST IMPORTANTLY, LET EVERYONE KNOW THAT THESE ATTACKS CANNOT BE TOLERATED. NOT IN THE MIDST OF GIVING THE BIGGEST EARNERS OF AMERICAN WEALTH A TAX CUT.

NOT WITH LIES ABOUT SHARED SACRIFICE, WHILE THE VALUE OF THE MIDDLE CLASS HAS DECLINED 14% IN THE PAST TWO YEARS, WHILE THE VALUE OF THE TOP 2% HAS INCREASED 36%.

THANK YOU.


No, I'm not apologizing for that. And you better fucking believe my ass is headed to Austin tomorrow.
