Republicans Poised To Fight Mask Mandate

The state-wide mask mandate in Wisconsin enters day two. How long it stays in place is anyone's guess. State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald says his members are ready to override Governor Tony Evers' statewide mask mandate. 

The Juneau Republican issued a statement saying in part, "The Governor has caved to the pressure of liberal groups on this. How can we trust that he won’t cave again and stop schools that choose in-person instruction this fall? There are bigger issues at play here, and my caucus members stand ready to fight back." 

After weeks of inaction, the Republican controlled Legislature could override Evers' emergency declaration and mask mandate with a majority vote in both chambers. Assembly Speaker Robin Vos said he expects legal challenges to Evers' action, but thus far has not indicated any interest in legislative action.

The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power – pure power.’

Maybe they could just try and help find a solution to what is happening instead of trying to put up road blocks?

Like just protecting those over the age of 70 and opening everything back up...
