Kreuser promises "extreme makeover" in Assembly



State Assembly Democratic Leader Jim Kreuser reveled in gains Dems made in 2006 and pressed delegates and guests to work to pick up at least three more seats in the state Assembly so they can win the majority in both houses in 2008.

"We're going to fight tooth and nail to get those three seats," Kreuser said, adding that Democrats will build on gains in 2006 and "flip this house."

Kreuser promised an "extreme makeover, Assembly edition."

With winning those three seats, Kreuser said "education will take precedence over incarceration," taxes for the middle class will drop while corporations will be made to pay their "fair share," healthcare reform will pass both houses, and Democrats will make the hard fiscal decisions instead of "signing silly pledges on extremist websites."

Kreuser, however, said there is no need to stop at three, noting that 15 Republicans hold seats in areas Doyle beat Green. In those areas, Kreuser said Democrats are going to "play hard."

Kreuser thanked U.S. Sens. Herb Kohl and Russ Feingold for working to get former Republican congressman and gubernatorial candidate Mark Green's appointment as ambassador to Tanzania approved.

"As far as I'm concerned, we can't get rid of that guy out of Wisconsin into Tanzania fast enough," Kreuser said.
