U.S. Senate candidate Tommy Thompson issued the following statement on Democrat Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats vote today to raise taxes on job creators:
"Harry Reid and the Senate Democrats showed their hand today by voting to raise taxes on job creators while families across Wisconsin and America are struggling to find jobs. Cutting taxes -- not raising taxes -- is how we will stimulate economic growth and empower main street businesses to flourish," said Thompson. "Until we retire Harry Reid as Majority Leader the American economy will continue to flounder and millions of families will remain out of work.
"I am the Republican's best opportunity to defeat the presumptive Democrat nominee Tammy Baldwin and be the 51st Republican vote in the U.S. Senate. I'll push my plan to cut taxes and regulations, doing what is needed to get this country moving forward and begin rebuilding our economy."
