This is what your lack of leadership has wrought @repvos & @SenFitzgerald: one of the top districts in the state is being forced to rely on a community “reopening task force” for guidance on what to do this fall. Shame on you for pawning off your job on your constituents. pic.twitter.com/D8ZE8CJVIC — Lynne Thomas (@LaTR75)…

False Equivalence

This #BothSides commentary is trash. @GovEvers had the "Badger Bounce Back" in place. The #wisgop has made clear they have no interest in any new plan : Do your jobs, Gov. Evers and GOP lawmakers, so COVID-19 doesn't surge https://t.co/HBk1qBM1KX via @WiStateJournal #wipolitics — Mason T. Becker (@MasonTBecker) May 18, 2020 .      …

More cases but no GOP plan

ICYMI Protestors spread COVID19 in Wisconsin & other states. Republican lawmakers still have no plan to save lives Less plans = more caseshttps://t.co/zY1rZXVzfA #Wisconsin #wipolitics #wisdems #wisgop #wiunion #wiright #SCOWIS @SenFitzgerald @RepVos @RepDittrich @GovEvers — Coffee Bean (@CoffeeBean26) May 18, 2020 .            

No Plan

And some folks thought this was a great time to 'reopen' without a plan.#Wisconsin #wipolitics #wisdems #wisgop #wiunion #wiright @SenFitzgerald @RepVos @GovEvers @RepDittrich @RepBallweg https://t.co/C4bYzcoOSI — Coffee Bean (@CoffeeBean26) May 14, 2020          


Wisconsin @GovEvers tells reporters that Republican lawmakers convinced four members of the Supreme Court to throw the state into chaos, adding, "We were in a good place. We're no longer…" — Mary Spicuzza (@MSpicuzzaMJS) May 14, 2020

Super Spreaders Set Loose

Things like bars, movie theaters, concerts… you name it…– all the "super spreaders" you can imagine are open right now in Wisconsin. And the result is inevitable– in a couple of weeks we'll be worse off than we were a month ago. https://t.co/7KwHWSwwWj — Jud Lounsbury (@JudLounsbury) May 14, 2020          …


Remember—during oral arguments, Rebecca Bradley, appointed by Scott Walker, compared stay-home orders to Japanese-American internment. Right-winger Pat Roggensack, who is up in 2023, said flare-ups among meat packers don't affect "regular folks." https://t.co/Nlf7huCfB7 — Ben Wikler (@benwikler) May 13, 2020
