Since the announcement to recall Scott Walker was made, our email box has been flooded with stories from working, middle-class families from across our state who are struggling as a direct result of Gov. Walker's extreme agenda.
Here are three of those stories:
"I have Lupus and my medication is very expensive. Scott Walker's cuts to health care are forcing me to chose between keeping a roof over my head or staying alive." --Christina from La Crosse
"My husband and I are turning 60, we have worked and saved all of our lives to be able to have enough to live in our small home and be able to take care of ourselves. Now that is all in jeopardy thanks to Scott Walker" -- Julie from Middleton
"I've been the sole provider for our family after my husband lost his job, but now my biggest fear is what will happen to my daughter when she is too old to stay on our health insurance. We can't afford to pay for her and she won't be able to qualify for BadgerCare thanks to Scott Walker." -- Pam from Madison
These are the real life consequences of Scott Walker's assault on the middle-class. These are the people that literally can no longer afford to have Scott Walker as governor. These are the people that need us to take out state government back.
Scott Walker and his powerful special interest friends will spend millions to try and silence the voices that make up our people-powered movement.
But Scott Walker has taken us down such an extreme path and harmed so many middle-class families that we’ll never let that happen.
With your help we will make sure the voices of people like Christina, Julie and Pam are heard.
