Letter: Republicans abandon the elderly, the poor, the defenselessSince the recall, Walker bills are churning out with a Harsdorf rubber stamp.

Since the recall, Walker bills are churning out with a Harsdorf rubber stamp.
A bill just passed prohibits local governments’ guarantee of paid sick and family leave. It’s the beginning of a plan to take away everyone’s common work benefits, followed by a right to work law for all workers.
Wait till you are told someday, “Well, public employees aren’t guaranteed sick leave anymore. We can’t pay you sick leave, either.”
The voter I.D. bill passed. Seniors who may not be driving and don’t have a photo I.D. could be turned away at the polls.
Parents, a bill has been proposed to even repeal child labor laws. Learn more: http://host.madison.com/ct/news/local/govt-and-politics/capitol-report/article_77bf08b2-93c5-11e0-8876-001cc4c03286.html.
When I see seniors buying just a few grocery items, I wonder if I am witnessing a fateful choice between health care and having enough to eat. The poor, disabled, and elderly will be squeezed even more when the Walker/Harsdorf budget bill cutting a half billion to Medicaid is enacted in a day or so.
I ponder, “There but for the grace of God, go I someday,” and ask, “Why are the defenseless and vulnerable being hurt to give power special interests?”
Now fake candidate, Republican Isaac Weix, has been planted on the recall election ballot as a Democrat, causing a Democrat primary.
It’s a crafty plot to cause voter confusion and use a Harsdorf surrogate to force out Democratic Party officially endorsed candidate, Shelly Moore.
See this dirty trick for what it is. Follow your conscience. Return Wisconsin to the people. Vote for Shelly Moore for state Senate July 12.
