    Wisconsin Accountability Board Approves 3 GOP Recall Elections

    The first round of Wisconsin state Republican senators slated for recall elections has just been approved. Senators Dan Kapanke, Randy Hopper, and Luther Olsen will face a recall election in July.

    Wisconsin Accountability Board Approves 3 GOP Recall Elections

    MADISON, Wis. – Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker and GOP leaders have launched a push to ram several years’ worth of conservative agenda items through the Legislature this spring before recall elections threaten to end the party’s control of state government.

    Republicans, in a rapid sequence of votes over the next eight weeks, plan to legalize concealed weapons, deregulate the telephone industry, require voters to show photo identification at the polls, expand school vouchers and undo an early release for prisoners.

    Lawmakers may also act again on Walker’s controversial plan stripping public employee unions of their collective bargaining rights. An earlier version, which led to massive protest demonstrations at the Capitol, has been left in limbo by legal challenges.

    “Everything’s been accelerated,” said Republican Rep. Gary Tauchen, who is working on the photo ID bill. “We’ve got a lot of big bills we’re trying to get done.”

    Knowing the anti democracy socialist Democratic Senators another "vacation" may be coming up. And of course the Libs will find no problem with that. Ask them if Republicans did the same thing in a dem controlled State and they will ignore you, let it actually happen and you will find out how fast they suddenly think it is a bad idea.

    The photo ID bill is the one most important to Republicans.

    Voter suppression is always at the top of their agenda.

    The U.S. military is the most socialist organization in the world.

    They tell you what to wear, what to eat, when to go to sleep, when to wake up, where you can live, where to get your healthcare, who you can have sex with, and they send you a government check every month for the rest of your life.

    So it always cracks me up to read retired military complaining about socialism.
