Over the past few decades, the middle class has worked hard, increased its on-the-job productivity, and done its part to keep corporate America profitable.
Yet, the economic situation of American workers has not improved, despite increasing corporate profits.
Tammy Baldwin, candidate for U.S. Senate, has strongly supported the middle class during her service in Congress.
Baldwin has vigorously pushed tax breaks supporting both the middle class and the small businesses vital to the creation jobs.
She has opposed unfair trade deals with China and South American nations, deals that encourage the outsourcing of jobs, and has worked at restoring manufacturing in our country by targeting tax cuts for companies that provide jobs for American workers.
Baldwin stood up for Wisconsin homeowners by opposing a sweetheart deal for the five largest mortgage banks that wanted immunity from prosecution for the disastrous financial finagling that took our economy down.
She has championed broad access to affordable quality higher education, knowing that a highly skilled, educated workforce is what we need to thrive in a competitive global economy.
Lastly, Baldwin has been a strong advocate for creating public/private partnerships and for the public-sector investments in innovation, education, research and technology that will make Wisconsin more competitive in a global economy and help generate more economic growth for our state.
Baldwin has plans that address today’s realities, not the economic conditions of 10 years ago.
As senator, she will move Wisconsin and the nation forward, not backward to the failed trickle-down policies of the past.
