I think it's really important to make it to these rallies and show support for the people in Wisconsin.  What the Rethuglicans are doing there, they are trying to do everywhere!

Romi -

Wisconsin Republicans' all-out assault on unions and middle-class families has nothing to do with fixing the budget deficit -- for them, it's just about winning. They pretty much admitted it this weekend. Check out this quote from Sunday's New York Times:

"Scott Walker and I and my brother [Speaker Jeff Fitzgerald] went into this session with the understanding that we had to deliver on campaign promises, that people wanted the Republicans to make change, that the more feathers you ruffle this time, the better you'll be."

- Republican State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald

They think "ruffling feathers", like beating down unions and middle-class families, will make it easier to get reelected. It's not about what's best for America or Wisconsin. It's all about winning the next election for them.

For us, it's about protecting good-paying jobs. Unions and middle-class families are the backbone of the economy and we need to stand in solidarity with them -- that's why we're joining our friends at MoveOn, Service Employees International Union, and 29 other organizations in a national day of action. Together, we've organized rallies in most major cities and all 50 state capitals across the country this Saturday at noon.

Now it's time to get the word out and make sure every event is a success. Please sign up to attend the rally closest you right now, then spread the word to everyone you know.

Find a rally near you for this Saturday at noon and sign up to attend now.

This is an all-hands-on-deck moment so don't stop with just signing up. We also need to get the word out and recruit others to attend.

The bigger each event is, the more press coverage we'll generate and the greater impact our message will have on the national narrative. So don't come to the rally alone. Bring a friend. Bring two friends. Heck, drive a car full of friends.

This fight in Wisconsin is bigger than just one state.

It's Ohio.
It's Indiana.
It's New Jersey.
It's all of us.

And don't for a second think Republicans in Congress aren't paying attention.

With a federal budget showdown looming as Republicans threaten to shutdown the Government, these rallies also serve to put them on notice. If Republicans try to cut the vital programs or the workers' rights people depend on to protect their middle-class families, America will stand up -- united -- and defeat them.

Join us this weekend at a rally in Louisiana.

Find a rally in Louisiana now.

Thank you for everything you do.
