Brookfield, Wis. — Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who has spent the last 30 years in government ignoring Wisconsinites, is bringing a heavy equipment operator from Little Suamico as her guest to the State of the Union on Tuesday under the guise of promoting a Wisconsin-first agenda in Washington.
“From her recent vote against tax relief for Wisconsin workers and families to the Tomah VA scandal, Sen. Baldwin has consistently ignored Wisconsinites in favor of the wealthy, out-of-state elites who bankroll her campaign,” said U.S. Senate candidate and state Sen. Leah Vukmir. “As she faces the toughest fight of her political career, Sen. Baldwin has resorted to using hard-working Wisconsin citizens as props to score cheap political points in her never-ending crusade against both President Trump and conservative policies that work.”
Just last month, Sen. Baldwin had an opportunity to vote for tax relief for Wisconsinites. Instead of voting in favor of the bill estimated to save the average Wisconsin family $2,500 per year, Sen. Baldwin joined forces with her liberal colleagues in the Senate and a majority of the Congressional delegations from California, Illinois, New York and New Jersey in a failed attempt to kill the bill.
Last week, Sen. Baldwin also voted to put illegal immigrants ahead of American military members and children by supporting a government shutdown. Sen. Baldwin’s vote for her wealthy special interest friends at the expense of Wisconsin citizens on tax reform is just the latest in a long line of votes that have hurt the workers and families she pretends to represent.
Leah Vukmir is a nurse, military mom and conservative with a proven record of reform who is running to bring the Wisconsin Way to Washington. She currently serves as a state senator from Brookfield.
