Of course, this follows the news that Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker briefed National Guard troops, preparing them to possibly take action against protesters who may "disrupt State services." Walker also says that if the measure fails, he will lay off more than 6,000 State employees and remove more than 200,000 children from Medicare. And this is only one of many measures Walker is taking that will completely ravage desperately needed public services.
|Sen. Lena Taylor's Facebook announcement|
Way to go, Wisconsin lawmakers, State employees, unions, and protesters! I hope we catch your spirit over here in Minnesota. Looks like it's already started to spread. In the meantime, I promise to stop telling everyone that your state is only good for Minnesotans who want to buy beer on Sundays.
You can sign a petition here to let Governor Walker know that you stand in solidarity with Wisconsin State employees.
