Tammy Baldwin: End the Afghan war & end nation-building

Baldwin, if elected, "would end the war in Afghanistan, make it illegal for drug companies to profit from Medicare Part D, get rid of corporate welfare for big farms and big oil."

Responding to questions on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, Thompson noted he'd helped build a hospital in Afghanistan for women and children. Baldwin called building hospitals a part of "nation building." However, both candidates favored ending the war in Afghanistan.
