Rep. Obey's meltdown

David Obey has been the U.S. Representative for Wisconsin's 7th district since 1969. He's done a lot of good things, but the job doesn't let up because you are a 30+ year veteran.

Lately, he's been getting visits from members of The Occupation Project, non-violent peace activists who refuse to take no for an answer. Several activists have been arrested at Obey's Wausau office in the past few weeks, demanding that Obey vote to defund the Iraq occupation and start bringing troops home immediately.

This video shows an encounter in a House office building hallway between Rep. Obey and Tina Richards, a military mom member of Military Families Speak Out in Missouri.

Guess who calls Richards an "idiot liberal"?

Read David Swanson's article, "The War Money Can Be Stopped."

It CAN be stopped. Obey and Ron Kind, our 3rd district weathervane, can stop it. They can stop it. They can. We have to make them understand that.

Monday, March 19. 4 p.m. Exchange Building. Be there.
