Thank These Brave Republicans!

Even Republicans are starting to see the Light about Walker and his so called "Budget Repair Bill".

See Milwaukee Journal Sentinal
"Walker's fellow Republicans said Wisconsin needs the mandate to ensure that waste is recycled - and not thrown into landfills.

In the 2011-'13 budget he unveiled this month, Walker eliminated the recycling requirement for local units of government.

His plan also would take away the state subsidy that communities use to help fund recycling.

Walker's proposal surprised many. But until now, much of the criticism has come from recycling advocates or Democrats, including Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett.

Now the four Republicans say Walker is making a mistake. They include Senate President Mike Ellis (R-Neenah)

Robin Vos (R-Rochester,) co-chairman of the Legislature's Joint Finance Committee, which will hold hearings across the state on Walker's budget.

Sen. Rob Cowles (R-Green Bay)

and Rep. John Nygren (R-Marinette) also took issue with Walker.

It's been my observation that being a member of the GOP and thinking for oneself are mutually exclusive activities. These four legislatures are proving me wrong. Good for them.
Please send letters of support to them for standing against Walker when they disagree.

Thanks for the information! I agree we need to thank those who risk the wrath of Govener Walker by not following blindly along on everything he does. I hope they can get there fellow Republican Senators to also take a stand for what is right, not for what is WALKER!
