'When will it be too far?

Print Article

The current power grab that is being forced onto the Wisconsin taxpayers is what most find appalling in today's political climate. When do we say that enough is enough?

The voters already spoke, and Democratic candidates won every statewide elected office. Unfortunately, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos and Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald do not care.

The lame duck session led by Vos and Fitzgerald is nothing but an affront to the democratic process. Republicans will be attempting to ram through numerous measures such as the limitation of early voting, restricting the new Governor Elect Evers and Attorney General Elect Josh Kaul, and the separation of the 2020 presidential primary with the Wisconsin State Supreme Court election. This creation of a new election, which is expected to cost almost $7 million in taxpayer money, is clearly due to the expected Democratic Presidential Primary turnout being high.

Senate Leader Fitzgerald was quoted recently as saying, "We don't trust Tony Evers right now.". Fitzgerald seems to have forgotten that 1,323,545 people cast their vote in trust of Evers, winning Evers the election.

If your reaction is something along the lines of, "If the other side were in power, then they would do the same", I want to ask you this: When do we say enough is enough? Complacency in our political leaders will bring us even farther down the road we are on now.

Long overdue is a new era in American politics where we hold our political leaders accountable for their actions.
