RSVP for Monday's Statewide Action Call | #WisconsinIsWatching: Republicans Are Ignoring Your Vote, We Won't Let Them
***If you are reading this after 6 p.m. on Monday, please register for the call directly by going to this link: http://bit.ly/WisconsinIsWatching ***
Late last week, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos, Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald, and Wisconsin's Legislative Republicans revealed their plans to hold a special legislative session to take away some of the new Democratic governor’s authority before he takes office.
Legislative Republicans are furious that last month Wisconsin voters decidedly charted a new path forward for our state, and they are trying to do anything they can to undermine the will of the people.
Now is the time for us to stand up for our democracy against more political games and tell Legislative Republicans it is time to get to work.
And if you want to ensure that #WisconsinIsWatching is not just a slogan, sign up to host or attend a "watch party" on Tuesday, and while watching the special session online on WisconsinEye, you can make calls to ensure Wisconsinites know what is happening in Madison. If you have any questions about hosting a watch party, email WisconsinIsWatching@gmail.com.
Legislative Republicans are trying to push through a five-bill, 287-page package that includes 42 different provisions aimed at changing the rules of the game to benefit themselves.
From changing the governor’s powers, to gutting the Attorney General’s office, to switching the 2020 election schedule for the benefit of a conservative candidate, to making it harder for working families to access Wisconsin’s social safety net - these actions by Legislative Republicans could be devastating for our state.
Wisconsin deserves better and Speaker Vos, Majority Leader Fitzgerald, and Wisconsin's Legislative Republicans need to know that #WisconsinIsWatching.
