Baldwin fails to explain why she put politics before Wisconsin families
January 22, 2018
[Madison, WI] — After needlessly shutting down the government – putting Washington games ahead of our troops – Senator Tammy Baldwin finally agreed to stop blocking funding and to reopen the government today. In 2013, Baldwin said that shutting down the government hurts Wisconsin families. As the dust settles, will Senator Baldwin explain what it was she wanted to accomplish with this shutdown?
“Senator Baldwin went along with Chuck Schumer and picked Washington political games over Wisconsin families,” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Instead of providing critical funding for our troops and ensuring children had access to health insurance, Baldwin pulled a political stunt and shut down the government. Now she owes Wisconsin an explanation: what was the point?”
