37 Is Too Many

Rob Zerban, who is taking on the epic failure Paul Ryan, sent out a campaign fundraising email with this image which was just too go to pass up:

Now, I don't normally do this, but because I found that picture to be so funny and because Zerban is one heck of a nice guy, I will also reproduce his whole email in the hopes that it helps raise a few bucks of him:
Congressional Republicans are on a witch hunt to vilify President Obama for anything and everything they can get their hands on. But while some of the more recent disclosures are troubling, Congressional Republicans seem more interested in the political theater than in getting answers. And that's the problem. 

Give $7 if you think political theater is a problem.

Hearings that last for months and go nowhere. Presidential appointments that go unconfirmed because of obstruction. A budget process that is stalled because Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan refuses to name a conference committee. And today, Congressional Republicans will vote to repeal the Affordable Care Act for the 37th time! Enough is enough. 

Get 3 people to give $7 if you think 37 times is too many.

As I travel across Southeast Wisconsin listening to the voters here, the issue that keeps coming up over and over isn't Benghazi or Obamacare, it's jobs. But just two weeks ago, when a hearing on unemployment was scheduled, only 4 lawmakers showed up. That is not representative democracy. That's political theater, and it needs to stop. We can end it, but we need your help getting the message out.

PS - If you stand with Rob, get 3 of your friends to give $7 because 37 votes to repeal Obamacare is too many.

  1. Chris, there is a second Democrat who may be considering a run against Ryan (she may also be considering a primary challenge to Peter Barca for state assembly or possibly even a run for statewide office, probably either lieutenant governor or state treasurer). Her name is Sara Johann, and she has this Facebook group where she has announced that she intends to run for public office, but has not yet decided on what specifically she intends to run for, in 2014:
