"In 30 minutes, 18 state senators undid 50 years of civil rights in Wisconsin. Their disrespect for the people of Wisconsin and their rights is an outrage that will never be forgotten."
- Wisconsin State Senator Mark Miller
Let this be a wakeup call to Wisconsin and the rest of the country: despite its claims, the Republican Party is not populist and cares little about the needs of everyday people. Instead they serve very narrow interests, primarily corporations and the very wealthy. Whether you're union or not, if the actions of Republicans in Wisconsin and elsewhere in the Midwest infuriate you, then don't let that anger go to waste. Channel that emotion into pushing for recall elections wherever possible, or else mobilizing people into voting the GOP out of office during the next elections. Make it happen.
Amen. I’d also suggest boycotting products from companies owned by Koch Industries.

The word "overreaching" comes to mind. I'm sure this will come back to bite the Rethuglicans.

Then again, they might be thinking (like the Dems did in 2009-10) that voters are going to change their minds again in two years, so you'd better pass whatever legislation you can while you're still the majority.
