  • Here's to 2012!

    'twas the night before Christmas, and all through the state, petitioners were stirring, because the recall can't wait... The republicans were smugly snuggled, with Koch cash in their bed, while the rest of the state is all seeing red... The volunteers in their recall t- shirts and the staff in winter hats weren't settling down for a let- up just ...

  • The last push has to start now...

    The RECALL is going well...but we are not there yet.  And you know as well as I do that the fight to end here is going to be harder with Christmas and worse weather coming. I was wondering if all of us could take one cut turf in a highly democratic area in Green Bay and be responsible for it by next Thursday?  We are getting flyers to ...

  • Senator Johnson is Wrong

    Sen. Ron Johnson's comment "we got the $800 billion stimulus which basically went into the pockets of public unions"  at a Green Bay campaign stop last week is dead wrong. I was there in 2009 and we faced a $50 trillion hole in the economy, and unions did not cause the mess. It was the losing Republican ideas of "Trickle Down" economics, ...

  • Freedoms Lost Are Hard To Regain

    APPLETON - In 2011, Rep. Reid Ribble voted to give away our right to privacy and, last week, we see its shameful consequences. With Ribble’s permission, federal agents searched and seized personal telephone and electronic communications.

  • Republican Open-pit Iron Ore Mining Bill Bad for Wisconsin

    APPLETON - Shame, shame, shame on all legislators who voted for dirty air, dirty water and bad health for people in Wisconsin. Remember, we have seen this movie before. It's called the China Way, and it did not have a happy ending. China sacrificed its environment for short-term economic gain, and their people are now paying the highest price po ...

  • A smart health care marketplace!

    APPLETON - In 2006, I ran for public office for the first time in my life to end discrimination against my patients with pre-existing medical conditions - and I succeeded.

  • I Support Tammy Baldwin

    Everywhere I go, people ask me, “Can Tammy Baldwin win Herb Kohl’s Senate seat?”  The answer – with your help – Yes She Will ! I strongly support Tammy – she’s a hard worker, tough and cannot be bought. I had the honor of working with her and know she is always on our side. Tammy has a steel spine, and even when the odds are against her, she ...
