MADISON – Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC) and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce today launched a series of television ads focused on freshman U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy (R-Ashland) and U.S. Rep. Tammy Baldwin (D-Madison) regarding their positions on health care reform, regulations and taxes.
“Federal laws, policies and proposals are by far the biggest cause of uncertainty for Wisconsin businesses,” said Kurt R. Bauer, WMC president and CEO. “Wisconsin businesses need fewer federal mandates, regulatory red tape and taxes.”
WMC and the U.S. Chamber ads praise Duffy and criticize Baldwin. Baldwin is expected to run for U.S. Senate later this year. The ads run through February 23 and are part of a multi-state blitz organized by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
In a news release today, the U.S. Chamber said public education is critical to promoting reforms that foster economic growth and prosperity.
“We’re engaging earlier and more aggressively than ever to educate constituents about which leaders recognize the role free enterprise plays in leading our economic recovery,” said Thomas J. Donohue, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber. “It comes down to a simple question: is big government or free enterprise the solution to our country’s economic problems?”
Founded in 1911, Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce is the state’s largest business association representing more than 3,500 employers of every size and from every sector of the economy.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
