Proud to call Senator Miller My Senator!

i have not always agreed with Senator Miller and think he has made a couple colossal mistakes, but I am very proud through this whole budget despair bill fiasco to call him my Senator. Senator Millers office delivered the following letter to Governor Walker and Senate Majority Leader Fitzgerald:

March 7, 2011
Governor Scott Walker Senator Scott Fitzgerald
115 East State Capitol 211 South State Capitol
Madison, WI 53707 Madison, WI 53707


Dear Governor Walker and Senator Fitzgerald:

Over the past several weeks we have witnessed an unprecedented public debate in Wisconsin over the value of
public workers and the importance of collective bargaining rights. I write today to offer to meet, in-person, as
soon as possible to resume discussions on how we reach a bipartisan solution to our differences on January
2011 Special Session Senate and Assembly Bill 11.

The working people of Wisconsin are deeply concerned about what the future holds for their families, and for
the great state they call home. Now more than ever they are counting on us as leaders to work together to
resolve our differences to move our state forward.

Since the bill’s introduction, public workers have come forward to offer economic concessions and Democrats
have offered a number of proposals to try to reach a bipartisan resolution.

I assure you that Democratic State Senators, despite our differences and the vigorous debate we have had,
remain ready and willing to find a reasonable compromise. To that end, I would ask that you or your authorized representatives agree to meet with us near the Wisconsin-Illinois border to formally resume serious discussions as soon as possible.

The people of Wisconsin are overwhelmingly supportive of us reaching a bipartisan, negotiated compromise.
Senate Democrats stand ready to do just that, we ask that you do the same.


Mark Miller
Senate Democratic Leader

3.7.11, Walker-Fitzgerald

  1. Excellent letter. I wouldn’t trust to meet Walker or Fitzgerald in Wisconsin, though, as he’d likely be met by someone who would drag him back to the Capital for a vote.

  2. He is correct that the working people of Wisconsin are concerned, sadly he and the other Democrats are not really concerned about Wisconsin, they are only concerned about the 300,000 people who fills his checkbook each election. This whole issue for the unions and the democrats is money one is worried about they will have to spend some of the taxpayer money given to them on themselves and the other is concerned that the taxpayer money given to those individuals will eventually dry up and they will no longer have the cash cows they did for elections. So please senator in the future tell the truth your battle is NOT for the people of Wisconsin your battle is for the pocketbook of your supporters and yourself. The rest of us will suffer no matter what.

  4. It took scott walker no time at all to dismiss Senator Miller:

    Capitol Chaos: Walker Says No To Meeting With Senate Dems
    MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The leader of the 14 Wisconsin Senate Democrats who fled to Illinois 18 days ago to delay passage of a bill taking away collective bargaining rights from public employees is asking Gov. Scott Walker for a meeting.
    When Newsradio 620 WTMJ’s Charlie Sykes asked Walker on Monday morning whether that meeting would happen, he responded, “no.”
    “In the end, we have reached out, and as time goes out, as people start to look at the documents in the coming weeks, the evidence is going to be overwhelming that we have been reaching out for weeks.”

    heavens no he has no time to meet with the democrats who represent half if this state and a good majority more on this issue. He has radio and tv shows to do and donor calls to take….

  5. Oh Steve that is so cute how you used a spinoff of my name….SO ORIGINAL, As for meeting with the fleebaggers, that will be fine if they come back to the state but going to Illinois to meet with the children is a horrible idea, let them sit in Illinois, let layoffs begin and lets start working on improving Wisconsin, something Democrats seem to not really care about.

  6. I am not Steve, I am Notaslob. It’s actually my real name. Huffin P. (Puffin) Notaslob. How dare you impugn my integrity. Maybe I’ll just take my Shakespearean comments over to BadgerBlather where they’ll be more appreciated.

  7. Sorry for not reading your brilliant posts of late nota….i read this one and actually agree with you! Lets start the layoffs….what better way to improve our state than lay more people off? the higher the unemployment rate the better. Hopefully we can get to full UNemployment that will show Scott walker stands firm and is a true leader.

    where did you get your Phd in Economics? University of Chicago?

  8. Governor Despicable has narrowed his attack plan to targeting one Democratic senator at a time. Now it is Senator Miller, whose name he mentioned about a dozen times in a short press conference. He such a narcissist that he has no clue that the people of Wisconsin see through this latest attempt at divide and conquer. Duh.
