ThinkProgress » WI Senate GOP Leader Admits On-Air That His Goal Is To Defund Labor Unions, Hurt Obama’s Reelection Chances.

FITZGERALD: Well if they flip the state senate, which is obviously their goal with eight recalls going on right now, they can take control of the labor unions. If we win this battle, and the money is not there under the auspices of the unions, certainly what you’re going to find is President Obama is going to have a much difficult, much more difficult time getting elected and winning the state of Wisconsin.

this is just sick. i hope people are paying attention.  We cannot sit by while those in power refuse to be accountable to citizens.  It’s seriously time for action, empowerment, and standing up to these bullies.
