WI Legislature Comment Phone Line Turned Off

Awwww, poor babies... having to answer "[h]undreds and hundreds of calls, every hour -- even at 3 AM." So what did the Republans do? They turned the complaint line off. To me, that speaks volumes about who they are.

But the AFL-CIO spokesperson had a message for the GOPers anyway:

A spokesperson for the AFL-CIO told TPM that he didn't know of any scheme to direct calls to the Legislative Hotline, and he suggested such a plan didn't really make sense as legislators in Wisconsin would probably only care about calls that came from people in Wisconsin, not national complaints from people forwarded to them by an outside group.

"And that's why their offices have been swamped with tens of thousands of people, letters, phone calls and emails because the people of Wisconsin oppose this radical attack," AFL-CIO Political Communications Director Eddie Vale said. 

The Republicans in control of both Houses of the legislature "can turn off their phones, they can put their fingers in their ears and stamp their feet, but the voices of the men and women of Wisconsin will be heard," Vale added.

La-la-la-la you can't stop us!
