VIDEO: A public servant shares her story of Act 10’s impact on her family

This is a powerful video.

My own thoughts on the impact of Act 10 on public employees are well-documented, but Monologues of Dissent summed up my thoughts perfectly. This is my boat, and the boat of so many other state workers who were barely getting by prior to the “modest concessions” and cuts imposed [...]

Apparently College Republicans think women are dumb

Watch this ad put out by the College Republican National Committee on behalf of Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker.
