This is a time when America needs leadership and decisive action. "We need to unite and effect an action plan to fight the pandemic, unemployment, climate change, and social injustice.

According to the National Council of State Legislatures, "Wisconsin has been the least-active, full-time legislature in the entire country since the beginning of the pandemic." State Senator Chris Larson said in early October that the legislature hasn't convened in 174 days.
"I don't know what Scott Fitzgerald stands for, because he doesn't discuss his positions on any issue. What I do know is he doesn't believe the state government should govern. He would rather leave that to the courts. America has had enough of this autocratic, take-it-or-leave-
State Senator Tim Carpenter released a statement on Wednesday calling for Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald to resign, citing frustration with the state senate's lack of Covid-19 or unemployment-
"Wisconsin is in a full blown public health crisis, with our state currently ranking in the top three worst states for COVID-19," Carpenter told Channel 3000. "We are facing the worst public health crisis since 1918 and the Legislature has no scheduled meetings."
The Democratic state senator said the pandemic would only worsen and that as cases rise, Wisconsin's health care delivery systems could be overwhelmed.
"The Republican-controlled Legislature has done nothing for over 170 days, failing to convene to pass any legislation to combat COVID-19 or the ongoing unemployment crisis," Carpenter said. "Senator Fitzgerald admitted that the Republicans don't have a COVID-19 plan, even while they constantly criticize Governor Evers' public health plans."
Carpenter said Fitzgerald should step down and urged the legislature to convene in committees and sessions to pass Covid-19 legislation.
"They say they have a plan other than Governor Ever's safer at home edict," said Palzewicz. "What plan? We haven't seen any plan, there has been no discussion, no debate. Wisconsin is being run like a third-world dictatorship. Nearly 140 thousand Wisconsinites have tested positive for COVID-19, and our legislature does nothing, because Scott Fitzgerald won't allow it."
