Pelosi and Dems cash-in on Wisconsin
Call me a glutton for punishment, but in order to keep an eye on the moonbat crowd, I receive e-mails from Nancy Pelosi. Every time there's a "crisis," she's there, cranking the spigot for cash, cash, cash. When Jared Loughner went on a shooting spree in Tucson, dollar-signs filled her orbitals. And, yes, the rise of "extremists" in Wisconsin - the one that puts its public employee collective bargaining in line with... gasp!... Maryland's - has roused her again.
Dear Fellow Democrat-
This week's shameful action by the Wisconsin GOP is just the latest example of radical Republicans standing with the special interests and tuning out the American people. Now, the very Republican State Senators who just voted to sell out Wisconsin's working families are headed to Washington, DC for a GOP fundraiser with Speaker Boehner's special interest backers.
We can't let this stand. This must be the moment where we come together to declare in a strong, united voice that we have had enough.

While teachers, nurses, social workers and other public servants fight for a fair wage and the right to have a say in their futures, Republicans from Wisconsin to Washington have sided time and again with the shadowy special interests that stand to gain the most from stripping middle-class workers of their rights.
Wednesday's ambush in Wisconsin made it clear that the Republicans are willing to do whatever it takes to force their radical right-wing agenda on America's struggling middle-class.
I won't stand for Speaker Boehner and House Republicans moving in lockstep with the Wisconsin GOP to escalate their assault on working families.
The actions of Wisconsin Republicans and their allies in Congress have shown they were never serious about reducing budget deficits. Instead of taking on taxpayer subsidies for their Big Oil backers, they are intent on taking away power from middle-class workers.
Now, the question is what are we going to do about it. Let's stand together.
Astonishing! It's about Big Oil! Governor Walker, hater of "working families," is pocketing millions from rigs in Green Bay. Who knew?
Of course, it was Madame Speaker, who last year, said: "We'll go through the gate, if we have to. If the gate is closed, we'll go over the fence. If the fence is too high, we'll pole-vault in. If that doesn't work, we'll parachute in. But we're going to get health care for the American people."
Does that sound like forcing a radical agenda on the working class? Not in Pelosi's world. Only in ours.
