Top ten reasons Sensenbrenner has to go

So far, ">Jim Burkee

is Wisconsin’s only hope to de-throne the 40-year incumbency of fifth congressional district Rep. ">Jim Sensenbrenner (R-Menominee Falls), and what a slog it’s going to be.

Elected to office and enjoying his gov’t power-broker benefits since 1968, is it even possible to unseat this ">millionaire and lottery winner?

Many Wisconsinites have given up hope, so here are some feisty reminders of why this heir to the Kimberly-Clark fortune should get booted out of office:

1. ">Sensenbrenner voted for taxpayer giveaways for ethanol

production and to benefit large energy corporations before he was suddenly against it in an election year.

2. Sensenbrenner authored the ">Real ID act. Just when I thought the conservatives could be counted on to reject this expensive expansion of the federal gov’t control, they find a way to conjure a solution in need of a problem. ">Voter fraud is a myth, folks. It’s a ruse to further dilute democracy and make it harder for the likes of ">peace-loving nuns to vote so guys like Sensenbrenner can keep their status and welfare benefits.

3. He voted ">against Wisconsin children

getting adequate healthcare coverage.

4.">Government spying on Americans is A-Okay with Jim Sensenbrenner.

5. Jim thinks ">Wisconsin taxpayer money is better spent on wars

in Iraq and Afghanistan than making our state and nation stronger domestically.

6. ">He voted against student loan relief to help make education more affordable.

7. ">Sensenbrenner voted against affordable prescription drug benefits for Medicare.

8. Gas is nearly $4 / gal., but ">Sensenbrenner voted against raising the minimum wage to help Wisconsinites better afford getting to work.

9. ">Sensenbrenner voted against strengthening homeland security for citizens of Wisconsin.

10. ">Sensenbrenner is against Wisconsin benefiting from stem cell research.
