Recall Wisconsin Senators

Arrogant Coward Senator Wirch


Groups exploring recalls of Holperin, Wirch
Two of the Dem state senators who have apparently left the state to prevent a vote on Gov. Walker’s budget repair bill could be the subject of recall efforts, according to statements issued Friday.
Daniel Hunt of Kenosha announced that a group to recall Sen. Robert Wirch of Pleasant Prairie would file papers with the Government Accountability Board (GAB) next week. “We need to inform Robert Wirch that his hiding in Illinois is unacceptable to the voters in his district, and that we are taking the first steps to remove him from office,” Hunt said in a statement.
An Eagle River-based group said it expected to file with the GAB by the close of business today. The group’s statement alleges Holperin “has failed to carry out his official duties in the state Senate,” and committee leader Kim Simac said activists would evaluate the recall effort over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Wisconsin state senator Jim Holperin, in his third year in the state’s upper chamber,  was videotaped in Illinois.  When asked why he wasn’t in Wisconsin doing his job, the senator stated, “I’m leaving right now to do my job. My job today is to delay a vote on a piece of legislation that the people of Wisconsin have said we have not had time to consider the consequences.”
We’ve all heard about the legislation. In summary, the measure would limit collective-bargaining rights for most workers—except police, firefighters and others involved in public safety—and require state employees, who currently pay little or nothing toward their pensions, to contribute just 5.8% of their pay to pensions, and pay at least 12.6% of health-care premiums, up from an average of 6%. We understand the consequences and so does Holperin. It’s just that the consequences for him mean fighting for the unions, not bringing fiscal responsibility to the state.
I say recall them. Do whatever it takes to bring them back to man up and do their jobs.  Time to face the consequences of governing and fiscal management.

Recall both for an example needs to be made not only for Wisconsin, but for the rest of the nation who’s watching closely for how this will end. If the elusive senators are not going to do their jobs, it’s time to get rid of them both. The public is getting sick of this union/government love fest that’s been going on with putative pResident Obama in the thick of things as always.

Wanted: Democrats who don’t throw a temper tantrum and go “I’m not listening” versus stuff they don’t like. (I’m in for a long wait, I know.)

Gov’t. Employees that went AWOL should be fired. Just think if they were military personnel they would be thrown into the brig first. A soap on a rope would look good on them too.

We call you idiots Koch Suckers. You are nothing but simple minded fools doing the bidding for the ultra rich like the Koch Brothers (Americans for Prosperity), Rick Scott (Medicare fraud) and Rupert Murdoch. You will all end up getting screwed by them along with rest of us.

I am a Patriot and a Conservative because I served my country, but I still believe that this country belongs to the people and not a couple of scumbag billionaires. Do you? You want facts. Please dispute these facts. You are the ones blindly following the party line – Heil Walker. There is ample reliable evidence on the financing of the “tea party:” by the Kochs and Rick Scott On March 19, 1997, investigators from the FBI, the Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Health and Human Services served search warrants at Columbia/HCA facilities in El Paso and on… Read more »

Eowyn My initial post had no obscenities. It merely stated that many of us Conservatives are now being used by oligarchs like the Koch brothers. They are hiding behind Conservatism as a method to take control. Those that do not see the huge amounts of money and political clout of the Kochs and their use of shadow astroturf organizations are suckers. (Koch suckers). That is not a misspelling or an obscenity. Definitions of sucker : * chump: a person who is gullible and easy to take advantage of I do not wish to live in an oligarchy – The Republic… Read more »

Our side? There is no “our” side to these guys. I wish that there was. These guys are in a whole different universe. We do not matter one little bit. It is all about power and money. It has nothing to do with philosophy or politics. They have very clever and sophisticated advisers that know how to manipulate and motivate various factions and groups. You can look back at our own history here in the US – do you think that Carnegie, Rockefeller, and Hearst were on “our side”. I lived in Saudi and I saw and heard how the… Read more »

I support Gov. Walker and I truely hope he can fix Wisconsin. I was born and raised in Milwaukee and I have went to the so called schools they have there. The system there needs fixing badly. Lots of teachers pay into the unions and really don’t want to yet they are made to. Lots of the teachers will be happy once this bill passes. They will no longer be FORCED to pay union dues.

Shame on you for trying to destroy a man’s career for standing up for the common working class. If our forefathers didn’t take action for their beliefs and support the rights of the people of this country, there would be a different history for our country.

Eowyn –
It looks like you are censoring debate. As Churchill said about Conservatives-
“above all else, no ideas”. I would challenge you to a debate, but you obviously lack the intelligence and integrity. Look at the “best and brightest”
of the conservative movement – Michelle Bachman and Christine O’Donnell.
I don’t really need to say any more. I rest my case.

You fools are being used by the Rich Oligarchy. The wealthiest Americans pay 15% in taxes because they use capital and money managers to make money, while the upper middle pays 35%. They are transfering wealth to themselves from you!… Socialization of the losses, privatization of the profits. Capitalism for the poor, socialism for the rich. https://trendriding.com/2010/11/21/understanding-how-wealth-is-being-transferred-video/

Gee whiz, I kind’a thought we needed prison guards to handle people in prisons, teachers to teach our kids, people to plow and salt our roads, etc.etc. etc. but this is the first time I had ever thought the actual reason we needed those people was to pay off WI’s deficits – by themselves no less ..plus those who have no health care, etc. I had this, what I guess was this weird thought — that it was the duty of ALL the citizens of WI to pay off WI’s debts especially when those debts were caused by Wallstreet and… Read more »

Hello world,
My name is Scott and I’m a deranged liberal. I’m so angry I’m spending my day obsessively leaving profane comments on every blog that covers Wisconsin. You’re welcome for my contribution to society.
Love, Scott from IP address 165.200.108.39

I have to admit I may not be a fan of some on this website as I am conservative in some ways and not so in others, if you can really put a moniker on my beliefs. Many would agree, and I would be one of them, that unions in their day contributed greatly to our society fighting for safer work conditions, 40 hour weeks and overtime, unemployment insurances (like it or not, unemployment insurance has an stabilizing economic effect in addition to keeping food on the table). Today, unions continue to fight for the benefit of their members (and… Read more »

ok, what I said “(ideally backed by fact). Please do not ask for sources’ was pretty stupid so here are some links (and yes I realize just because it’s on the internet doesn’t make it true).
