(Baraboo, WI) - The Executive Committee of the Republican Party of Sauk County (RPSC) adopted a resolution supporting the passage of the 2011 Budget Repair Bill in its current form citing the departure the state’s Democratic caucus. The resolution supports recalling all of the senators for willfully disrupting the fair process of legislation
The resolution notes that the current piece of legislation was legally navigating its way through the legislative process. It also states that, as a representative republic, the A.W.O.L. senators swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, adding the senators are utilizing dictatorial tactics. The resolution says that any compromise at this point is dangerous to the future or our government.
“We appreciate that there is an effort to put an end to the chaos in Madison right now”, says RPSC Chair Tim McCumber, referring to the protests at the State Capital. “Unfortunately, if we give the Chicago senate delegation any sort of compromise, the future of Wisconsin politics will be to pack up your caucus and drive across state lines any time you’re in the minority.” McCumber adds, “Elections have consequences and you can’t just take your delegation and leave just because you lost.”
McCumber also commented on Senator Dale Schultz’ compromise bill, adding that while he believes Senator Schultz was well-intentioned, it is more harmful to the process than good. “We want to make sure he knows we disagree with him and hope that he withdraws the offer. The missing 14 senators can’t speak for the hundreds of local unions and his plan will be a failure”.
Membership in the RPSC is $15 a person or $25 for a family. You can learn more by calling McCumber at (608) 616-9467 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
