On November 3rd, 2007, then Senator Barack Obama said in Spartanburg, SC:

"And understand this: If American workers are being denied their right to organize and collectively bargain when I'm in the White House, I'll put on a comfortable pair of shoes myself, I'll will walk on that picket line with you as President of the United States of America. Because workers deserve to know that somebody is standing in their corner."

Tonight, eighteen Republican Wisconsin State Senators cast a party-line vote without a single Democratic Senator in attendence to strip tens of thousands of Wisconsin workers of their right to collectively bargain on everything from wages to working conditions.

President Obama promised us that he would stand in our corner -- the corner of working families who just want a fair shake -- and march with us when our rights to collectively bargin were being denied.

Now that this reckless vote has happened in in Wisconsin, we need the President that Senator Barack Obama said he would be.

President Obama, please go to Madison, put on your comfortable shoes and stand with Wisconsin working familes like you promised?
