Mailbag: AFL/CIO writes Re: Extraordinary Session

Dear Wisconsin MoveOn member,

Urgent: Governor Scott Walker and Wisconsin Republicans are calling an "extraordinary session" of the legislature, beginning TODAY. By the end of the week, they plan to slash education and health care and jam through rights-stripping attacks on Wisconsin workers as part of the state budget.
The people of Wisconsin have stood together for over 100 days in a historic response to the unprecedented assault on the working and middle classes. Wisconsinites have rallied, marched, and even set up tent cities to call attention to Gov. Walker's devastating budget proposals and to stop the attacks on working people. But even with recalls of anti-worker legislators looming, the attacks go on.

We must continue to fight and show the governor, the legislature, and the media understand that the people of Wisconsin don't support Gov. Walker's radical agenda. That's why I created a petition to Gov. Walker, which says:

"Do not jam attacks on Wisconsin unions into the state budget. Your budget already hurts our communities by gutting education, slashing funding for health care and limiting public services. Do not make it worse by incorporating attacks on our workers and middle class."
Will you sign the petition? Click here to add your name, and then pass it along to your friends:
