WINNING IN WISCONSIN - Stop The Teapublican War On Working Families:

The Wall Street Journal reports -- "Conservatives in Wisconsin are getting nervous that three Republican state senators may defect on the collective-bargaining reform vote."

NBC news in Wisconsin reports -- "four moderate Republicans are wavering and could break with the GOP and vote against Walker's budget repair bill."

And Talking Points Memo reports on a brand new poll by a Republican leaning pollster -- "Rasmussen Poll: Almost Six In Ten Wisconsin Voters Disapprove Of Gov. Walker"

Our strategy is working. We can win this fight. Please contribute $25 to keep our T.V. ad playing statewide -- and non-stop -- until Republicans cave.

The New York Times reports -- "Billionaire Brothers' Money Plays Role in Wisconsin Dispute"

The secretive Republican billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch bankroll the Americans for Prosperity Foundation, which had a budget of over 40 million dollars last year. They've spent millions backing Governor Walker and pushing an anti-worker agenda.

But now the Koch Brothers have met their match -- and it's you.

We're untied together with the people of Wisconsin and our partners at the Progressive Change Campaign Committee in fighting to stop the war on working families. Republicans and the Koch Brothers are on the run playing defense, but we can't stop until we win.

Keep the pressure up on Wisconsin Senate Republicans to abandon Governor Walker and his anti-worker budget. Contribute right now to keep blanketing the state with our T.V. ad.

This isn't just Wisconsin. We're all in this together. Ohio, New Jersey, Indiana, all across America, Republicans are waging a war on working families.

It's up to us to stop them.

Thank you for everything you're doing to win.

As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
