Republicans Disaster Week continues tomorrow with a bill pushing to end comprehensive sex ed by ending the Healthy Youth Act. I guess Republicans want to let the free market see if a lack of condoms will spread pregnancy and std's? Also up: the business community is pushing hard to jam through a 172-page bill to add more bureaucracy to Milwaukee County government. This bill was originally written in February, made public last week, and has it's first public hearing tomorrow. Also tomorrow, professional teeth grinding right-wing announcer Charlie Sykes will be hosting a movie day in the Capitol with Republican Rep. Robin Vos. All this, on top of an additional $65 million cut to universities Walker announced today (on top of the $250 million from earlier this year). And somehow, this is all going to magically create jobs? Are you buying that or are you ready to recall Walker on November 15th and take Wisconsin back?
