She represents District 2 well, but I doubt the entire state would agree with much of what she does.

The job loses in Wisconsin have forced many of our children to return home but when your parents are forced to move back in with you now you know Walker has really failed.

Just what we need is another low life to represent Wisconsin. Put this clown on the unemployment line. The Repugs here need a wake up call to try to bring them back to reality.
