While Lassa Calls for a Pro-Worker-Pro Business Job Creation Strategy, Sean Duffy Supports Tax Breaks for Corporations that Ship Jobs Overseas
Candidate for U.S. Congress Julie Lassa emphasized her fight to clean up Washington and put Wisconsin middle class families first in her address to the Golden Sands Home Builders Association. Lassa highlighted in particular the importance of ending failed Washington policies like tax breaks for corporate outsourcers that her Republican opponent Sean Duffy supports and creating jobs here in Wisconsin to strengthen the economy. Duffy also participated in tonight's forum.
Lassa has been recognized by the Wisconsin Builders Association Friend of the Housing Industry for her leadership in home-building issues, earning awards in 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, and 2010. She also was named the Wisconsin Builders Association Friend of the Housing Industry award in 2008. She worked for the Golden Sands Home Builders Association earlier in her career.
"I'm running to fight for the Wisconsin values we share-hard work, making a dollar stretch, and fair competition are being represented in Washington, Lassa said. "It is essential that we end failed policies like tax loopholes for corporations that ship jobs overseas and invest in creating jobs right here in Wisconsin to strengthen our economy."
Lassa has been meeting with voters across the state to share her ideas of how to invest in Wisconsin's middle class families and small businesses and drive our state forward. She calls for lawmakers to take a 10 percent pay cut until unemployment is lowered and refuse pay raises until we balance a budget. Lassa also proposes a pro-worker-pro-business job creation strategy that will help Wisconsin compete in global markets. More information on Lassa's Wisconsin Values to Washington plan and her call to action to create jobs is available on her website.
While Lassa is fighting to take the Wisconsin values she shares with working families to Washington, Sean Duffy is out of touch with the district. Duffy has made clear his support for corporate special interests that ship jobs overseas and for extending the Bush tax credits for millionaires and billionaires. In addition, Duffy has failed to account for his record as Ashland County District Attorney after reports emerged that he let violent offenders off the hook and hadn't bothered to show up for work.
