will cost more than they'll save by the proposed cutbacks probably.
I'd really like to see one legislature (and Congress) cut back themselves, indeed they should volunteer for at least one year without pay in the spirit of leadership, as they cut back everyone that hasn't donated enough to their election war chests.
Both sides are gearing up for recall elections to try and change the balance of power in Wisconsin. Walker can't be recalled until he's been in office a year. About half of each party senators can be recalled, the others still have to serve a full year before any recall can be placed against them.
It's becoming a political firestorm on Facebook, pages dedicated to drumming up support to recall both Republican and Democratic lawmakers over their position on the governor's budget repair bill.
But it's not stopping there.
On Saturday, a group of more than 100 people will meet at the Rock Garden in Howard to plan a recall effort against Senator Dave Hansen, a Green Bay Democrat.
In northern Wisconsin, efforts are even further along to recall Democratic Senator Jim Holperin, who represents Senate District 12 which includes portions of Marinette and Oconto counties.
"I can hardly talk to you right now because the phone keeps ringing, the emails are full, we've got a group of people here today to help me field all the phone calls, the emails, and how we're logistically going to cover contacting all the people who have contacted us," Kim Simac, who's leading the recall effort, said.
Simac says -- and the GAB confirms -- she filed the necessary recall paperwork. She says Saturday more than 200 people will start traveling the district to collect signatures.
"The goal is 20,000 signatures and to replace Senator Holperin," Simac said. "We need someone to represent us with dignity, and simply getting up and running out of the state when the going gets tough is very embarrassing for us people up here in the district."
Lawmakers being targeted say they aren't surprised.
