State of Wisconsin Archives: on Energy & Oil


Tammy Baldwin: Government should get out of subsidies to big oil

Baldwin told the debate audience, "You've seen two very different views. I'm for the Buffett Rule and a balanced approach to move the economy forward. I want the government to get out of subsidies to big oil and corporate farms. Medicare and Social Security should be bedrock guarantees," she concluded.
