U.S. Senate Democrat Tammy Baldwin gives first floor speech

WASHINGTON D.C. (WTAQ) - Wisconsin’s newest U.S. senator said Wednesday that her state’s businesses and middle class residents are “stuck in neutral” while the national economy recovers.

Democrat Tammy Baldwin followed a Senate tradition, and waited a few months before giving her first floor speech to her colleagues.

Baldwin – who spent 14 years in the House before moving to the Senate in January – said there’s a disconnect between the concerns of Wisconsinites and the rhetoric of Washington. She said Capitol Hill bounces from, “one manufactured crisis to the next, never addressing the real and ongoing crisis of our disappearing middle class.”

Baldwin said her goal was to create a, “Made in Wisconsin” economy that revitalizes the state’s manufacturing sector and rebuilds prosperity. She said labor must be respected, and there needs to be regional research and development hubs plus more support for technical colleges.

Baldwin was among 12 senators who were newly-elected last fall. Because of her time in the House, she has the highest rank among the new members.
