One Year Later: Loss To Wisconsin Is Breathtaking

Breathtaking is best word I would use to describe the long list of grievances noted and sourced in this summary compiled by the Wisconsin AFL-CIO.

Here are just a few ...

  • Loss of the Freedom to Bargain Collectively

  • Barriers to Voting

  • Rejection of $810 Million in Federal Rail Funds

  • Child Labor Exploitation

  • Re-opening a Corporate Tax Loophole

  • Extreme Cuts in Funding of Public Schools

  • Funds Cut to Communities

  • Recycling Aid Cut

  • BadgerCare, Medicaid, FamilyCare and Homestead Credit Cuts

  • Women’s Health Care

  • Victims Denied Their Day in Court.

  • Sweeping Authority to Cut Health Benefits

  • Government for Sale

  • New Legislative Districts Rigged to Elect Republicans

  • Governor Grabs Settlement Funds Meant for Homeowners

  • See the full list here.

    Declaration Of Independence Excerpt:
    In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
