Has spent her career pushing policies that hurt agriculture in Wisconsin
June 6, 2018
[Madison, WI] — As Wisconsinites gather on farms across Wisconsin to celebrate the farmers who help make our state run during Dairy Month, Senator Tammy Baldwin has been doing everything she can in Washington to support backwards liberal policies that hurt Wisconsin farmers. Baldwin talks a big game when it comes to helping Wisconsin farmers, but her policies have set Wisconsin farmers back.
“Hard-working Wisconsin farmers are important to Wisconsin’s heritage. Senator Baldwin has towed the line of her liberal base and our farming families have paid the price” said Alec Zimmerman, spokesman for the Republican Party of Wisconsin. “Tammy Baldwin is picking Washington over standing up for our Wisconsin farmers.”
Senator Baldwin supports policies that hurt Wisconsin farmers
- The American Farm Bureau Federation’s most recent scorecard gave Tammy Baldwin a 25 percent scoreon its key votes as of April 2018.
- According to the American Farm Bureau Federation, the Obama-era Waters of the U.S. Rule (WOTUS) would allow the EPA to control 92 percent of the acreage in Wisconsin– giving the EPA massive regulatory reach over Wisconsin farmers.
- On at least five occasions, Senator Baldwin has voted against repealing the Death Tax – a direct blow to family farms and small businesses.
