As Ed noted a few days ago Democratic Gov. Tony Evers sent a letter to Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald – both Republicans – inviting each of them to meet to discuss the state’s response to COVID-19. In his letter Gov. Evers noted it has been 180 days since the Republican-controlled Legislature last passed a bill.

Think about that – it has been 6 months since Republicans in the Legislature did their jobs. I don’t know about you, but if Wisconsin’s Republicans feel they can take 6 months off from the jobs they’re being paid to do by Wisconsin’s taxpayers then perhaps it’s time to explore the possibility of of Wisconsin’s legislators being treated as part-time employees, including cuts to their pay and benefits.
