Madison, Wisconsin— Taxin’ Tammy Baldwin is wrapping up her August recess and heading back to Washington, where tax reform will take center stage. While Republicans are working to fix the tax code, Taxin’ Tammy has spent her career choosing Washington over Wisconsin by voting in favor of higher taxes on hard-working families and Wisconsin businesses.

“Taxin’ Tammy Baldwin is notorious for putting Washington over Wisconsin jobs and families,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Senator Baldwin has voted more than 150 times in favor of higher taxes, refusing to give small businesses a break, and increasing taxes on hard-working middle-class Wisconsinites. Time and again, Taxin’ Tammy stands with Washington’s big-government special interests, not the people of Wisconsin.”
