Protecting our Family Farms
"Our family farms are the fabric with which we weave our heritage and the backbone of Wisconsin's economy." -- Jeff Fitzgerald
As Wisconsin's Junior Senator I will aggressively pursue free trade agreements that will open new markets to Wisconsin's agricultural exports. I will support the construction and maintenance of the infrastructure necessary for Wisconsin's Agri-businesses to thrive and grow; and I will fight animal rights activists and environmental extremists who threaten the family farming way of life.
I strongly oppose the death tax, in part because I believe that it is important that family farms be passed on from generation to generation.
I will work tirelessly to keep government out of the way of our hardworking farmers and farming families because I know that all farmers would rather be in the cabs of their combines and tractors then filling out numerous bureaucratic forms.
