Professional politician, Tammy Suzanne Green Baldwin, (D-WI), began her political career in 1986 on the Dane County Board of Supervisors and a year on the Madison City Council. Then in 1983 onto the Wisconsin Assembly representing the most liberal Madison district before being elected to Congress in 1998; after 7 terms was elected in 2012 to the US Senate succeeding Herb Kohl. So, another Poster Child has spent the bulk of her life in government with little or no experience in the private sector.

The respected independent public policy groups that follow the voting records for a specific purpose, not partisan politics, are instructive: Citizens Against Government Waste calls the Junior Senator from Wisconsin “Hostile” to taxpayers at 4% --in contrast the State’s Senior Senator Ron Johnson who is applauded as a “Super Hero” to taxpayers at 100%. The Club for Growth shows her at 5% in favor of economic freedom for votes favoring free trade, free markets, rational tax policy affecting job creation, growth and prosperity. Again, Sen. Johnson is at 95%. The National Taxpayers Union gives her an “F,” their Big Spender category.
