Keep an eye on Wisconsin this month

2 posts / 0 new

The field is set for the Wisconsin recall election scheduled for June 5th – and it’s going to be a rematch. Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett won the Democratic nomination Tuesday night – giving him another shot at defeating one of America’s most unpopular Governors – Scott Walker – who Barrett lost to in 2010 by 6-points. But this time around – things are different.

With the labor movement fighting for its life – and millions of Wisconsinites organized for a common purpose: to end Scott Walker’s war on working people – then Progressives have a real shot at taking back the Badger State. But they’re going to have to overcome more than $20 million in out-of-state millionaire and billionaire campaign contributions that Walker has raised in the last few months.

The Death of the Middle Class was by Design...

Even in the face of the so-called Recovery, poverty and inequality are getting worse in our country, and more wealth and power is flowing straight to the top. According to Paul Buchheit over at Alternet, this is the end result of winner-take-all capitalism, and this destruction of the working class has all been by design.
