State Senate Democratic Leader Judy Robson rallied the convention crowd around increasing Democratic momentum nationwide, their winning of the majority in the state Senate and touted the state Senate's passage of a universal health insurance plan.
"Happy days are here again," said Robson. "Isn't a great to have a state Senate that is back to putting Wisconsin families first?"
Robson led the crowd with the rallying cry of "enough is enough" over Republicans opposition to universal health care.
"This allows doctors and nurses to be in charge of health care again instead of some bureaucrat in Texas."
Robson lamented those without access to health care, and said over 355,000 state residents have lost insurance provided by their employer over skyrocketing health care costs and company outsourcing abroad.
"Republicans have cut and run on the issue, and Democrats are delivering on universal health care."-- By Patrick Fitzgerald
