WATCH THE AD HERE: WarOnWorkingFamilies.com TRANSCRIPT: PCCC/DFA Wisconsin Ad: Republican War On Working Families 60 Sec. Emily Pease-Clem, Teacher Madison, WI: Governor Walker and the Republicans just gave over $100 million in tax cuts to corporations. And now theyre asking teachers and nurses to pay for it. And attacking workers right to negotiate for fair benefits. Richard Scoby, Graphic Designer Middleton, WI: It will probably cost us between $400 and $500 a month in income. I've tried not to think about it, just be out here on the square. It's not selfish. It's just survival. Kristine Fantetti, Secretary Whitewater, WI: I'm just a secretary. And this bill that Walker's proposing is going to cost me over $3,000 a year. Not to mention more down the road when we lose our collective bargaining rights. Jeremiah Holden, Educator Madison, WI: I believe that the issues that are being discussed here in Madison are not unique to Madison or the state of Wisconsin. These are national issues. Money is being taken away from workers and the tax breaks given to major corporations. Kathleen Slamka, Electrician Oak Creek, WI: This is Republican class warfare an attack on the middle class. This is a battle we need to win.
