Subject: BREAKING: Republicans jam through bill in Wisconsin
Wisconsin Republicans just used the nuclear option to jam through their anti-worker bill. We can't let them get away with it. Can you help raise $500,000 tonight to recall the Republican senators who did this by donating $5 to the Democratic Party of Wisconsin via ActBlue?
Dear MoveOn member,
Minutes ago, Wisconsin Republicans made a shocking power grab—ramming through their partisan attack on workers' rights without a single Democrat present.
It's shameful, unprecedented, and probably illegal. We can't let them get away with this.
We have to recall the Republican state senators who did this.
Progressives in Wisconsin have already gathered thousands of signatures to do just that, but they need our help to get the job done. Let's send a clear message that trying to destroy the American Dream is a surefire way to get booted from office.
Can you help raise $500,000 tonight for the recall efforts, to make sure these senators lose their seats over their outrageous actions?

With the Wisconsin 14 out of state for weeks, Republicans have been unable to jam through Governor Walker's bill taking away union rights from public workers.
But tonight, the Republicans decided to use the nuclear option. After modestly changing the Governor's budget bill, they "declared" that it was a different kind of bill that they could pass without the Democrats and passed it—all in a half-hour.1
Thousands of Wisconsinites have already flooded the capitol and will occupy it overnight. And Wisconsin Democrats are already exploring legal challenges to stop the law. But it's up to the rest of us to make sure that these senators pay a heavy price for their actions, so everyone gets the message: Attack workers and middle class families, and there will be consequences.
Help raise $500,000 tonight to send these Republicans packing:
Thanks for all you do,
