Sensenbrenner's Town Hall - West Allis

The Beer: Liberty Ale. Nearly ready to bottle.

The Bicycle: Making plans for the ride at Tyranena later this year.

The VRWC: A good crowd met Congressman Sensenbrenner at the West Allis Library for a Town Hall. There had been indications that (can't) was sending people, but if they did, they were no where to be seen.

The Congressman falls along the same political line as I do. The audience felt the same. There was one individual who rambled a bit in his question and I was accosted by a conspiracy theorist on the way out. Channel 12 had a camera person there for all of 12 minutes (we timed it).

Major points:

  • People are concerned about the direction of the country. They believe the country is desending into socialism. They don't like big government and definitely don't want the healthcare reform that is being proposed in Washington.
  • The Congressman believes the administration and Democrats in Congress will attempt a middle-of-the-night vote on Obamacare. It is not as dead as you might think.
  • Cap and Trade is also not dead. The Wisconsin (alleged) Global Warming bill is the bigger danger in the near term.
  • Stay vigilant and keep up the pressure.
