The heart of America beats in manufacturing communities like Marinette. It’s where generations of workers have forged the ships that allow America to project power and keep the peace around the world. With the help of leaders like Senator Tammy Baldwin, the Obama-Biden Administration invested in shipbuilding in Marinette and fostered good-paying jobs across the Fox Valley to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula for the better part of a decade.
Today, Donald Trump is in Marinette to take credit for Obama-Biden Administration-fueled successes in an attempt to paper over the fact that Wisconsin has been bleeding blue-collar manufacturing jobs over the past few weeks. Instead of offering real relief to working families, he’s trying to claim credit for progress in Marinette he did not build.
Donald Trump doesn’t appreciate or respect the struggle of generations of workers in Wisconsin because he’s never lived that struggle. It shows. Today, his Administration is filing a brief with the Supreme Court to rip health care coverage away from 23 million Americans — including 224,000 Wisconsinites. Every American deserves the peace of mind that comes access to affordable, high-quality health care. No one in this country should have to lay in bed at night staring at the ceiling wondering what they will do if their husband or wife has a heart attack or their son or daughter gets cancer. But if Donald Trump gets his way, many sleepless nights await families in Wisconsin and across this nation.
