Tammy Baldwin is the candidate for the U.S Senate who is looking to cut taxes and provide relief to Wisconsin’s struggling middle class.
Baldwin has a strong record of supporting tax cuts for middle class families and small businesses in Wisconsin including the child care tax credit; marriage penalty relief; expanded student loan interest deduction; tax credits for hiring veterans; and increasing lending and lowering taxes for small businesses.
In August, Baldwin voted for a plan to cut taxes for middle class families and small businesses in Wisconsin. Baldwin also opposed a proposal offered by Congressional Republicans – and supported by Tommy Thompson – which would cut taxes for the richest 2 percent, but raise taxes on 25 million middle class families. Thompson has promised to pass the GOP Romney/Ryan plan to give individuals making over $1 million a year an average extra tax cut of $265,000. This is on top of the $129,000 tax cut they would receive from an extension of the Bush tax cuts.
The plan supported by Baldwin would extend the Bush tax cuts for 98 percent of American families and 97 percent of small businesses, in addition to extending middle class tax deductions passed in 2009 to help working families with children and to help families afford college tuition.
Her votes in the U.S. House of Representqatives show that Tammy Baldwin lives up to what she says on the campaign trail and truly is fighting for Wisconsin’s middle class.
There is a clear contrast on taxes for these two candidates. Tammy Baldwin has my support because she is doing what she can to help out the middle class in Wisconsin by voting to cut taxes for Wisconsin’s small businesses and middle class families. I’m confident that Baldwin will continue to be a voice for working class people in Wisconsin if elected to the U.S. Senate.
